During one of my last weekends in Phnom Penh, I decided to try a few "firsts."
We took a short river cruise to the Bungalows Sunset Bar, a floating bungalow and bar, which has been touted as the place to catch a Phnom Penh sunrise. The river was brown and muddy and unfortunately, the sky was too cloudy to glimpse a proper sunset. But it was still a nice way to wile away the afternoon with friends.
Ethan took me to dinner at Romdeng, a Khmer eatery which is housed in a stunning French colonial building and whose profits go to support its projects with street children and their families. The restaurant is well known for its deep-friend tarantulas with lime sauce, but we tried vegetarian options of Khmer curry and "fish" amok instead.
Other weekend plans: Khmer desserts at NOM with Vy and Saran, Mexican night and too much wine at a N's, followed by listening to blues in really cramped, hot spaces, and an evening walk and ice cream sampling at Le Cone - it was a good weekend.
What will my last full weekend in Phnom Penh look like?
