Day 3 – Phnom Penh

National Museum

This museum was reopened in 1979. It is surprising it see it survived the devastating years of the Khmer Rouge rule. Doctors, teachers, librarians and all who looked intelligent were slaughtered.

Seeing Hands Massage Center – Blind Masseuse

With our aching joints from our full day site seeing, we decide to give this a go. Also we wanted to support the blind. We climbed the dinghy stairs to the massage parlor…I was thinking, maybe we should turn back. Looked pretty weird inside. All customers are cramped in the one room. We decided to go with the Foot Massage. I have to say they did an great job!!!

Wat Phnom – Temple Mountain

Dating back to the 1400’s, it is built 88 feet above sea level. Our guide tells us it offers a great view of the area. When we arrive it is too hot for us to climb. So we just stood at the bottom and looked up.
