After feeling that Phnom Penh was out to get us, our initial thoughts were to just high-tail it out of Cambodia to Vietnam. But, Amber and I both agreed that we were likely missing out on seeing what Cambodia is really like. We stayed in touristy Siem Reap and the tourist section of Phnom Penh and these places hopefully were not what the country was about. Therefore we launched Operation: Give Cambodia A Chance. We decided to venture to a less visited town and see what it had to offer. Our guidebook mentioned a city called Kampong Cham that was on the Mekong River, less developed for tourism, and only 3 hours away from Phnom Penh. We then booked our bus there and tried to find accommodation once we arrived.
