5/11/2015 – Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Left Sihanoukville, for Phnom Penh. About a 3-4 hour drive. Once we arrived back in Phnom Penh, we went to the Russian market, which was pretty much similar to other markets across Asia, such as Ben Tanh in Vietnam, Silk market in Beijing etc. Got a couple of magnets, an aluminium gecko and some rice balls which were very nice. Freshly cooked street food, meaning a delicious lunch for a dollar, is always worth a mention!
From there I went on a sunset cruise, cruising around the Mekong river. Saw a really nice sunset, but otherwise the river was really quiet. A few people fishing, a few other sunset boats, a ferry. The water level is low and they have cancelled the water festival this year because the river is so low.
Some nice lights from the river, could see the Kings Palace, this time it was a view from the river. After a quick tuk tuk ride back to the hotel, we went out for tea, a western type restaurant because it was close and quick.
