    This was my second visit to Tuol Sleng. My first visit was a few years ago. I now live in Cambodia and after the initial tour of the classrooms that were used for torture, I made it to the second wing where the photographs of the prisoners were taken. I stayed about 5 minutes before getting sad and leaving. The people in the photos were just like the people I live with.

    If you're a tourist and interested in the recent history of Cambodia under Pol Pot, by all means visit. If you really know any Cambodian people, it'll make you sad.

    We felt so shocked to see all bones of victims killed during khmer rough. They are all innocent. Wish Cambodian not meet this situation in the future.

    Just able to see from outside but I've been told that the palace will open Dec 1 2022. So hope that will turn out that way. From outside it is not too bad, the impression from inside must be much great(er)

    We chose a cruise trip on Pandaw cruise to explore the Mekong river and life on the waterway. It's a nice trip. Good seeing how people earn living with daily activities

    Easy to get to, it's just a short walk from the top end of the city.
    Plenty of shaded areas to sit and people watch. A buddhist temple at the top of the hill. Worth a visit.

    Contains a lot of different historical objects from around Cambodia. There are a couple plaques to help contextualize the significance of certain pieces, but for the most part it's a self guided experience without the audio guide.

    I wish the attendant had mentioned the availability of a guide beforehand, as I found myself breezing through the museum in a little under an hour without the historical background.

    May be a good rainy day activity to burn an hour or two, as there weren't too many standout exhibits in my opinion.

    The only real reason to come here is for the building itself. Most of the stalls are not selling tourist type merchandise but I had a fabulous hour or two here marveling at both the building and the food market. The food market has an extraordinary range of seafood and you can sample some of it at the food stall that run along one edge of the market- it is clearly fresh as all the seafood is alive!

    Russian Market has a lot of options for shopping. The quality is average though. Fun place to shop! We found some good winter wear and stoles. Lot of options in T shirts as well. Wish we could also have found good quality cotton dresses and Tshirts.

    As all parks and green spaces have been turned into construction sited the Riverside is the only space to enjoy a nice walk without being run over by motorbikes or luxury cars.

    It’s a big mall with many well known brands, a big food court, Aeon department store and even a cinema. I liked a small shop on the second floor, Amazing Cambodia, that had specially selected gifts that were iconic for this lovely country - Pepper seeds, teas, candles, silks and more.

    Nice place to visit, small place . It just took us around 15 min to cover the ground. Not crowded with tourist and locals as Covid-19 was spreading everywhere around the world.

    Kept seeing Samai pop up on recommendations for nightlife and wasn't sure if the Thursday only thing was because of Covid or something else. Think it's mainly just so that they focus on the actual business side of things a full 6 days.

    They do offer tours of the distillery but when we got there (around 8:30) I'm pretty sure it wasn't available to go on at that point.

    Either way the section that is open is a really neat space with the rum barrels hanging on one side and the bar on the other. I had ordered two mixed rum drinks that were both very good; one was a rum and coke type of drink called 21 Points and the other was a sweet and sour drink called Passionate Distillers.

    Crowd seems to skew more young working professionals, but also saw a decent mix of Western expats, Western and Eastern tourists and some Cambodians as well.

    Overall a fun first stop on our night out.

    We came here with our little ones. They loved it so much. It is a great place for kids to have fun and make new friends, as well as a good sweating time.
