A Good Direction, Cambodia

Phnom Penh

The Destination

When travelling it is important to take the time to learn about the new countries you are visiting; language, culture, traditions and history. Phnom Penh is Cambodia’s biggest busy city but it is also where you will find a lot of its dark history. Give yourself at least one whole day to experience it.

The List

The Killing Fields / Choeung Genocial Center

  • This is one thing I would urge you to do in Cambodia. Learn about the Khmer Rouge regime that devastated the country and visit one of the heart-wrenching sites it took place.

S-21 Prison / Museum

  • No words can explain the overwhelming emotion that comes from visiting these two sites.

THE STAY

  • Mad Monkey Hostel
    • A chain of hostels in Cambodia that has everything you need
  • Phnom Penh is a transportation hub in Cambodia so you may end up coming back a couple of times. Make sure you can spend at least one whole day to visit the killing fields and S-21 prison.
