Over Hari Raya this year (Sept 2011), Kendall and I spent a few lazy days in Phnom Penh. We didn’t do much of anything there except read (I read 3 books, not sure how many Kendall read), watch dvds (a whole 7 episode BBC mini-series), eat, dip in the pool and sleep. So, not much of anything touristy at all. Didn’t even buy a single souvenir.
Attached to our hotel, The 240,Â is a restaurant that serves western organic food. I assume the breakfast they served us was organic too.
We did walk from our hotel to the Mekong River, along side Â the wall of the Grand Palace, though we didn’t go in. We walked along the river where there were many cafes catering to western tourists. Prices were western prices too, USD7 for two drinks and one small plate of spring rolls. Weather was as hot as in Malaysia.
One tourist destination we did visit was the Wat Phnom.
On the whole it was a very relaxing stay, perhaps not the usual tourist experience, but I would say, we enjoyed ourselves in Phnom Penh.
