Phnom Penh is a compact little town spectacularly located on the confluence of three rivers. The Royal Palaces and Silver Pagoda are great days outings, and the sobering ‘Killing Fields’ and the Tuol Sleng Museum are a stark reminder of this country’s recent history under the brutal regime of Pol Pot.
My next stop is one of the more inspiring sites in the world – Angkor Wat. These temples are monumental constructions, the largest religious buildings in the world. The intricacy of the carvings is incredible and the site is well worth 2 days exploration.
