Walking Tour in Phnom Pehn

My last day in Cambodia, Julie, Sarah and I spend most of the day on a walking tour in Phnom Pehn, and had stopped walking only because we were badly sun-strucked, and had to be carried back to the guesthouse on a Tuk-Tuk.

We visited the Central Market today. It was an impressive building which we assumed was once a train station. The market's got everything from souvenirs to deniem jeans, or for those with special interests, there are also taranchula snacks and fake rolex.

We ate dinner by the lake side again (my last meal was pizza, as my stomache had not been feeling well after drinking a suspicous bottled water at Angkor Wat). Coincedentally, we were showered by another thunder-rain-storm. My farewell present, perhaps?

We spend the evening back wondering on the street, intending to catch some local night life scene. We walked passed numerous food stalls by the side of the road, there were sandwich subs (very similiar to the Vietnam sandwich I had before), and shaved ice (using a similiar ice machine as in Taiwan).

Off to bed now. Good-night Cambodia.
