Phnom Penh

Welcome to Phnom Penh!
After Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor, arriving in the hustle and bustle of the city was a bit of a shock! But we soon settled in and you'll see from the photos what a lovely place it is.

I'll post another set of photos of the temples and the Royal Palace in about a month, when I get back from a trip to the UK. I hope you enjoy your walk around Phnom Penh! Alan

This first photo shows the National Museum.
It houses one of the world's largest collections of Khmer art

A well-deserved nap. It requires a lot of
concentration and effort to drive a tuk tuk
all day in Phnom Penh

Great name, Joe's Joynt

A crisscross of roads and cables!

A very cute resident of Phnom Penh

Only room for one passenger. I wonder if her
motorbike broke down as she's wearing
a crash helmet

A flurry of activity

The Central Market (Psah Thmay).
Impressive building

Daniela inside the market

Helping Mummy at work

A line of Apsaras in the street

Small market

Enjoying the bumpy ride outside the Russian

Making a wooden Apsara

How does she do that? Carries
her own stool too

Drying the laundry

Cambodians start early with their bikes!

A long boat

A perfect picture of work-life balance!

Orderly displays

Caught in the sunlight

A market near the river

Offerings for the temple

Everything you need to clean
the house

It's windy by the river. Kite
flying is popular

Fancy a snack?

Flags of the world

Heavy work pushing your work to work

Heavenly passenger

Tranquility by the river
