Cambodia is so beautiful. And poor. Very poor.
-steamed, fluffy pancakes with palm sugar coconut filling-The Dutchman and I had a great time there- despite my MIL complaining about the prices. Cambodia is cheap. Cheaper than Malaysia so that just annoyed me. It's like that in every country- if you eat in a nice place, it will be expensive.
- fish amok-
-outdoor shower. There's also an indoor shower and a double bath-
All the other resort staff were great though. Malaysians should really learn from them because they get paid a fraction of what Malaysians get (average: US$80/month) and yet, they don't feel entitled to all kinds of rubbish unlike similarly educated Malaysians (or Dutch people for that matter...). We visited a 5-star resort in Malaysia which is in the RM700/night (180 euro) range and the staff were not only inefficient, they also bitch about people. I find that unprofessional.
On the first day, we went for a private boat tour to watch the sunset at the Tonle Sap lake. We were provided with 2 bottles of wine, olives, cured meats, chicken satays, sweet potato chips and so forth. Along the way, we passed many floating houses. According to our driver, the people living here were originally from Vietnam. The kids were playing in the dirty water and everyone basically lived off the lake. There were goats/ducks in cages floating over the water. It was interesting to watch but I felt a little like an insensitive visitor at a zoo.
I would definitely go back to Cambodia again. 4 days is just not enough!
