Phnom Penh

Our scrapbook notes about Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is becoming increasingly popular over the years, due to the tourist boom of South East Asia. Phnom Penh is a great city to visit as a backpacker as it's fairly accessible from most of South East Asia, but the main fact is that it's damn cheap. Expect hotels, cocktails, meals and private tours for crazy cheap prices. However, the price comes with a lot of child poverty, which can be a negative part of the visit. But Phnom Penh is still a city to visit, especially to explore the history of the war and revolution. Have your wits about you, but enjoy the cheapness whilst you can.
