Phnom Penh Part 2

It was very pleasant to return to the hotel we had previously stayed at in Phnom Penh.  The staff were so warm and the accommodations so comfortable that it we would have been happy to stay for a long time.  We ended up staying for a week and really enjoying hanging out in the city.  Phnom Penh is pretty quiet relative to other Asian capitals.  It is easy to navigate and with the combination of wide boulevards lined with French Colonial buildings juxtaposed with ground level shops and houses, decent parks and abundance of delicious street food, we found we enjoyed it just as much the second time around.

The park across the street from our hotel was wonderful to stroll through, particularly in the mornings and evenings.  As the heat of the day lessened the park came alive with families picnicking and watching their kids play.  Many vendors set up shop offering a variety of street food and other treats.  There were soccer games, Cambodian version of aerobics classes, Thai Chi and lots of other activities.

The night market was another fun place with lots to eat and lots to see.  The “food court” consisted of a variety of vendor carts in an area where mats were laid out on the ground serving as tables. 

The city, similar to most other Asian cities we have visited, also had excellent markets where you could buy just about anything. 

We haven't been quite adventurous enough to try the delicacies in the two pictures below.

I couldn’t drag any of the boys out for too much more site seeing but I enjoyed visiting the Royal Palace the Silver Pagoda and Wat Phnom on my own.....  

After 6 months the tangle of wires that seem to piece the electrical system together throughout Asia still amazes us.....as do the safety precautions they take when working on them.


Phnom Penh turned out to be an excellent city to get to know and although we were in no hurry to leave we were interested in seeing a little more of Cambodia before our visas ran out so we bid the fair Capital farewell and set off for the southern coast.
