Rather than attempting a full day-by-day itinerary, in this post I’ll give a quick one-off look at the week I spent in Phnom Penh.

By arranging to rent a bike for the duration of my stay, I left myself the convenient leeway to pop down the block for a quick bite, or stray as far out of the city as I liked. And while I could’ve easily done with twice as much time, in the end I think I struck a pretty good balance between working, running some much-needed errands, and riding around to gain a decent feel for the city.



Note: These posts are behind realtime; the above took place in March/April, 2012.

  1. The anti-corruption unit probably takes bribes to not lift a finger all day long πŸ™‚

  2. Except the visa……hahaha….grrrrr

  3. Another awesome post πŸ™‚

    The Killing Fields are disgusting. I can’t imagine the agony of even visiting, much less hearing the voices of survivors while wandering around and even less of actually living the hell they experienced…Human kind is capable of unspeakable evil….

    Your experience reminds me of my visiting the Anne Frank house after partaking in Amsterdam’s finest. I don’t recommend it unless you like to sob uncontrollably.

    I want that Palm tree in Pic 8….

      I actually don’t think I ever made it there. Certainly not on my most recent visit to Amsterdam (2010)…I don’t *think* I went back in 2004 either, but that was more of a whirlwind trip when I didn’t really know how to travel very well πŸ˜‰
