Was rather guarded prior arrival to Phnom Penh, but it turns out to be a good trip! The immigration clearance was a breeze and so was the baggage collection.
There are lots of motorbikes on the street, and rather common to see 3 adults on them. And some were not wearing helmets at all. Stayed at Naga World Hotel, it is first foremost a casino, so once you step into the lobby...slots machines!!! The hotel has good facilities, the spa is amazing...the spa rooms sizes are bigger than my hotel room.
There is a good selection of restaurants in the hotel, and the food is good too, especially the Korean restaurant. The only thing I don't like is the number of smokers around the lobby and Casino!
Anyway, I was there for business and was recommended by a friend to hire a car instead of trying to take the taxi. So I did that and was the best decision I made. The driver speaks some English, very friendly and show me around Phnom Penh (I hired him for the whole day)...turns out it is cheaper and more economical than trying to book with the local tour. The car was very clean and the driver (Nov Sarath...www.sarathlimo.com) is very careful man.
Oh...if this is going to be your first trip to Cambodia...prepare US$ bills....they hardly use their own currency. Do visit Cambodia.
