Phnom Penh is alive. The hustle and bustle of this city is everywhere, it's residents are amongst the friendliest and most helpful people in the world and it has everything a city can offer from hip vegan restaurants to traditional Khmer food spots, rooftops bars and backpacker hangs with swimming pools, shopping malls, beautiful monuments & museums and a devastating history which visitors can learn and experience at the killing fields and tuol seng museum. Phnom Penh is a budget friendly spot, and has an international airport where you can head to beachtown Sihanoukville, or Siem Reap to see the temples. It's a little dusty so wear a mask when travelling around the city. I've always felt safe here and can't wait to go back.
A fast moving city that lives US dollars. Choose a popular tourist place or you’ll feel bored, unless you are a cultural buff
The first place I visited in SE Asia and a great place to start a trip hopping through SE Asia. Locals really enjoy visitors, tourism is actually built into building their economy back up. A lot of local history to be seen that most don't even know went on in Cambodia. Temples, the Genocide Killing Fields (although sad you can learn a lot about Cambodian history there), and great places to eat.
The drinks are cheap. There's a dedicated tuck tuck all day. Me Mate's Place has wifi, geckos and it's damn cheap!
