Phnom Penh & Sihanoukville

In Phnom Penh, we went to visit the S-21 death camp where Pol Pot and his regime killed thousands of people, then went to the killing fields were mass graves were made.

Sihanoukville is a small, chill place to hang out for awhile.  Lots of westerners working in the bars and restaurants though, which was weird.  We got extorted by the police who demanded $10 from us for driving a motorbike


Temples of Angkor

I wish I could label all of these properly, but I don't remember the names of all the temples.  It was a really long day.  The tuk tuk driver met as at the guest house at 4:30 a.m. and we stayed out for about 12 hours exploring all the temples.  A friend of mine gave me a great tip to avoid the hordes of tourists - ask the tuk tuk


Siem Reap

The highlight of Siem Reap was definitely the Temples of Angkor.  Aside from that, it's a nice town with some other temples around other than Angkor, and another site of the Khmer Rouge horrors
