Phnom Penh

I’ve got lots of catching up to do, for the last two weeks when I was in Cambodia. I’m in Lao now, but it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t share my Cambodian trip. During these last days I took the time to live, and I didn’t blog…

I came in to Cambodia by bus from Ho Chi Minh Ville, aka Saigon, and spent the first three or four days in Saigon. I originally planned to stay less, but my passport was at the Lao embassy for a Visa I didn’t need because I could do it at the border, but they didn’t tell that in the Lying Planet, did they?

For a first look on Cambodia, Phnom Penh was positive. And staying there two or three more days wasn’t that bad. You meet lots of people in your travels… a Canadian Viking who wants to have his own restaurant in Siem Reap, an englishman who was ok to go drink beers on the lakeside, two Danish girls I had met in the Transsiberian and then in Chengdu and Dali, China, and some cute french girls, wandering around the globe…

After the hustle and bustle (is it a right expression? I read it somewhere) of Saigon, Phnom Penh was calm and so nice… I loved it. I could visit the national museum, wander in the streets and visit the markets, discover a photo exhibition which took place all around town and was organized by the French embassy, PhotoPhnomPenh.


  1. J’aime ta façon d’être silencieux face au monde. C’est Bouvier qui disait que l’écrivain voyageur devait parfois être muet.

  2. J’y étais en même temps que toi! J’ai passé décembre 2009 au Cambodge, puis janvier 2010 au Myanmar (et puis la Thaïlande avant et après).
