I started the tour with so much excitement. I went home drained with energy but gained a lot of insights and knowledge about the history of the Angkor. It truly befits its description, as a place of gods, full of wonder.
When I was researching on the places to see during my Indochina trip, Phnom Penh is not exactly included in my itinerary. I’ve heard some bad reviews about it from other travellers. But I was glad I decided to stay one night in Phnom Penh and do some sightseeing in the city before I leave for Siem Reap.
Day 3 of my solo Indochina trip was spent on travelling from Ho Chi Minh City to the capital of Cambodia which is Phnom Penh. I used the service of Giant Ibis Bus which made the border crossing so much easier. You can book your tickets online. Click here. We left HCMC at around 9AM…
The scenery is so beautiful but there is something unauthentic about it. It has adapted a touristy function. Although there are still some houses that are built along the river, I believe they exist for the tourists to see.
If there is anything I learned about Vietnam on my first day, it is that the country is a foodie’s paradise. The dishes are an explosion of flavor for your sense of taste.
HCMC is home to 8 million motorbikes and there’s no better way to see the city than from the back of a motorbike!
