Phnom Penh is the Capital of Cambodia. It is located in between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh, both with 6-7 hours bus ride.
We dropped by Phnom Penh to meet my cousin’s childhood friends who is working there and also to check the tourist spots in the largest city of Cambodia. We were supposed to see the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda but because my female cousin enjoyed her reunion with her friends, got drunk and wasted; my male cousin on the other hand, got sick because of the foul smell of his bus seatmate on our way to Phnom Penh from Siem Reap, we were not able to see the two spots. We visited Wat Phnom instead.
Special thanks to our gracious hosts Tin-Tin and her younger brother Mac-Mac for the food and booze they offered and for accompanying us around 🙂
