Well, I finally arrived to Phantom Penh this afternoon. I have to say, I wish I had come a lot earlier. I cannot believe I lived in Vietnam for nearly 6 years and I had not visited Phnom Penh.
The bus ride was not as bad as I thought. I traveled with Chris Dollmont, who made this trip several times already. I chose to travel with Mekong Express from Pham Ngu Lao though a little after the fact, I was told Sapaco is the best way to travel to Phnom Penh. Lesson learned.
The border crossing at Moc Bai took about 30 minutes. We arrived into Phnom Penh at about 2:30 PM and then took a tuk tuk to the Zaman International School (more about them later) and then went with a friend to find our guest house. We already visited the Russian market before I conked out in my room after we returned.
Phnom Penh is a very relaxing city. More pictures later. For now, enjoy the pictures from the bus trip below:
