First hours in the land of Khmer

I had anticipated Phnom Penh to be more tranquil and less Westernized than Bangkok. I wasn’t wrong. Of course, the movement is still intense, the people are still busy with commerce and trade, minding their business. But the traveller’s first glimpse is of a more authentic Asian city. It’s only opening to tourism now, and a lot of it is still kept, untouched and done the Khmer way…
