Koens new journey is about to start. This time it’s all about exploring Europe and Asia. Wherever possible, I’ll be trying to travel by train or ferry. A slower way of traveling should bring a nice pace to collect some impressions and meet some people.
While the recent history of the country isn’t that nice, the country now is a great place to visit. I went to Cambodia for the first time on my trans-European and Asian trip, and it’s now part of my South East Asia stops whenever I can.
I flew here, coming from Thailand and used a car with a driver to go back and forth between Siem Reap and Phnom Phen. There are buses of all sorts that can get you over this distance, starting at a few dollars per segment.
With Angkor Wat and the other temples, the most frequented place. One of the spots where digital nomads like to hang out. The many coffee shops and cheaper hostels and hotels are a witness of the success.
Phnom Phen is the capital. I wasn’t that impressed. It felt like a large, dirty city. Walking places is not that easy, so thanks for tuk-tuks.
