They called it land of temples yes i've never imagined about this country. But after browsed, it is quite near with vietnam so me and my boyfie planned to go there.
#1 they use US DOLLAR and give change in CAMBODIAN RIEL so becareful it will make you confused
1US$= KMR 4000
#2 all tourists objects close to each other within walk distance ( 500m~1km)
#3 main transportation : TUKTUK so if you lazy take it! Usually half day tour or one day tour costs US$ 4-10
From vietnam you can take flight for saving your time or taking a bus for budget saver. We took " mekong express bus" from phamngulao area in hcmc direct to Phnompenh, the capital city for about 7 hours drive. Many people comes here just for transit before go to the main city attraction, Siam reap. Because actually no many things to be seen in this city. If you browsed from Tripadvisor, youll find Genoside museum and Khmer killing field museum to visit. But for me, those place is creepy and scary, so i skipped to more touristy happy place HAHA so here some of things
12 HOURS LESS IN PHNOMPENH
VISIT THE ROYAL PALACE
Samdach Sothearos Blvd (3), Phnom Penh, Cambodia
(Open 8-11 am/ 2pm-5pm) ticket price : US$4
SUPER PRETTY ♡ i thought cambodia is more to thailand side. You can see the royal palace pretty similar looked with Thailand royal palace also. If you historical lover go inside but if you like me just do picnic outside of it HAHA
