Journey to Cambodia #1

CamTESOL was a highly-recommended gathering, or so a variety of past attendees told me. (And, yeah, the conference was well-organized. I would consider going again.)

The city of Phnom Penh wasn't as endowed with sights as I'd hoped it would be. On the other hand, it did possess a surprisingly large contingent of foreigners. In addition to the run-of-the-mill backpackers you'd expect to see, there were plenty of retired Australians in evidence.

So what can you see in Phnom Penh? The Royal Palace, some Buddhist temples and the confluence of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers. Getting around was a cinch thanks to the sheer number of tuk-tuks driving around.

After the conference, we took a 5-hour bus trip up to Siem Reap in the northwest. What could be easier?

Coming-up: Siem Reap and Angkor Wat.
