Welcome to day 23 of our trip, where we’ll be traveling from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. This will be a long day of travel, as we’ll be crossing the border from Vietnam to Cambodia, but it will be an adventure that we’ll never forget.
To cross the border, we’ll travel by bus from Ho Chi Minh City to the border checkpoint. We’ll need to have our passport and visa ready, as well as any other required documentation. Once we’ve cleared customs and immigration, we’ll continue on to Phnom Penh. The journey will take approximately six hours, but the scenery along the way is stunning.
Once we arrive in Phnom Penh, we’ll have a cyclo tour of the city. A cyclo is a traditional mode of transport in Cambodia, similar to a bicycle rickshaw, and is a great way to explore the city. Our tour will take us through the bustling streets of Phnom Penh, past historic landmarks and local markets. We’ll have the chance to see the city from a different perspective and experience the local culture.
In the evening, we’ll have some free time to explore Phnom Penh on our own. We can visit some of the local restaurants and try some of the delicious Khmer cuisine, such as fish amok or Khmer curry. We can also visit some of the local markets and buy some souvenirs or handicrafts. Or, we can simply relax and take in the sights and sounds of this vibrant city.
