The Busy City Of Phnom Penh and the Horror of S21

Phnom Penh is the capitol of Cambodia.A very busy city of nearly two million people, and what seems like two million motorbikes.Just getting across the road is a nightmare.

The city is washed by the Mekong, Bassac and Tonle Sap rivers.

The best places of interest are the National Museum and the Royal Palace.

It’s also the home of S21, the school that was used as a prison during the Pol Pot regime.

It is now a museum and for a small fee you are able to wander through the classrooms that were used for torture and slaughter.

You get a sickening feeling as you walk around looking at all the original photographs of the victims that were treated so brutally.The beds are still in each room along with the shackles.

Pictures were taken of all the victims that came to S21.

There is an absolute silence as tourists pass through the classrooms viewing the many pictures that are displayed.

It certainly left a bad taste in my mouth, however, it is a very interesting place to visit.

Accommodation in Phnom Penh.

Plenty of good places to stay here 2 star upwards.

I choose to stay close to the river, it’s fairly central and has a pleasant outlook.

One place that comes to mind is the Mekong Palace, quite comfortable at around $20 US per night.

Just down the road a little is a good bar called the Cadillac, good place for a nice cold beer with no pressure.

If you need more information on where to stay you could check here for details.
There are plenty of boats along the river front.Many of which are moored and used as restaurants.

Getting across the river is easy by some of the boats used as ferries, getting up the other side is not so easy.

The banks are very steep, creating a problem when it rains.

We had such a good time crossing the river on the boat with this tuk tuk.

Trouble was it could not get up the river bank and we had to push. The following day this tuk tuk took us to the killing fields.
