About Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh is a dusty, hotbed of activity – a city on the move! Laid back colonial charm exudes on the waterfront, with its impressive collection of swanky expat bars and restaurants. Downtown brims with traffic, noise, people and commotion. Phnom Penh is also emerging as Cambodia’s most hip and happening tourist magnet. Temples, spas and coffee houses jostle for position while travel agencies and street vendors ply their wares along the meandering river front. This city is brash, in your face and seeps into your every pore!
All waterways lead to Phnom Penh - the early evening commute on the TonLe Sap!

Cambodia can feel like South East Asia’s final frontier. It is a country with a turbulent history. Heavy carpet bombing during the 1970s and the gruesome reign of the Khmer Rouge have had a profound effect on the national psyche. Thankfully, Cambodia is beginning to experience an upturn in fortunes. Despite much of the population living on less than US$1 per day, Cambodia’s tourism industry is thriving. The lure of temples, unspoiled beaches and the heart-felt generosity and spirit of its eternally optimistic population are key factors in Cambodia’s re-emergence onto the world stage.

Health care and services are extremely basic / non-existent outside of the major urban centers. Standard of care at urban medical centers can be patchy and visitors to Cambodia are advised to take out medical / health insurance prior to arrival. In Phnom Penh, standards of health care at private hospitals is good.
Cambodians are known as the masters of fresh spices and, as a result, the local cuisine tastes fresh, flavorsome and subtle. Dishes are presented with an array of herbs, sauces, pickles, leaves and condiments to make for a sumptuous dining experience. Amok (catfish steamed in a coconut based curry) and with sticky rice is a regional favorite. One of the more unusual dishes is deep fried tarantula, a delicacy not for the faint of heart!
Travelling in Cambodia
There is no passenger train service in Cambodia so overland travel is done by bus or private taxi. Due to heavy traffic in Phnom Penh, one should be cautious when renting a car or motorcycle. Travelling around the major urban centers is often best undertaken by bicycle or tuk tuk. If you are travelling by tuk tuk, be sure to agree on a price first!
What to bring
Save on baggage allowance by leaving your winter wardrobe at home. The temperature in Cambodia rarely gets below 28 degrees so sweaters and jackets are not necessary! Here's a quick check-list of what we'd recommend bringing with you:
Smart, conservative clothes for work
Umbrella (for rainy season)
Beachy stuff like flip-flops and swim-wear
