Phnom Penh: Out and About

Some street scenes from our recent trip to Phnom Penh.

The ubiquitous tuk-tuk.

Cruising through the Russian Market (Phsar Toul Tom Puong).  It gained popularity with the foreign crowd in the 1980's, when the only foreigners were from the Great White North.

Don't pick pockets in the market or you'll end up here! The wall of shame.

The hulking remnants of French Colonialism.

A Soviet brutalist architectural aesthetic with tropical flair.

Kool & The Gang.

Also, recommended guesthouse in Phnom Penh: Velkommen Guesthouse. Clean, minimalist, inexpensive, kind staff, and good location near the riverside.
