Phnom Penh

We landed in Cambodia’s capital town Phnom Penh to stay one night.
The civil war ended in 1997 and the country is one of the poorest in the world. Cambodia has 12 million citizens and they also have nearly 10 million landmines still in the country!
They are now restoring roads and buildings. There were not many paved roads.
The soil is red and brown from sand and clay. There are a lot of potholes, mopeds and motorbikes, wagons, cars – chaos, poverty and misery.
We visited the National Museum and the Royal Palace but we considered the town to be a little bit uncomfortable.

Prev Siem Reap
Next Kuala Lumpur
