Phnom Penh

Today, we moved on to Cambodia. In Cambodia's capital Phnom Penh we learned that traffic (chaos) can easily get worse than in Bangkok.

The first three pictures show the Grand Royal Palace in Bangkok. It took us three attempts to get in because some guys in front told us it's closed and we should better go to some other places. From previous trips we learned that those other places will be tailors or other shops where they want you to spend money. In fact the palace was not close we just had to be stubborn and ignore all those "helping" voices.







As we were relaxing in a park...





In Phnom Penh... as in Thailand guys with orange cowls usually are monks. They are very respected but still don't seem to have access to the most comfortable of transports.
