Cambodia – Fourth Stop

And here starts my month in Cambodia!wpid-wp-1447172507945.jpg I first went to Phnom Penh with Cédric and we had an insight into Cambodia’s History by visiting the Killing fields and the S21 Prison. It was very hard to see all this horror but also very interesting. We also visited the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda.

To end my trip in Cambodia I went to visit Mondulkiri province with its nice waterfall and temple. wp-1449551767956.jpgAnd I decided to finish with Ratanakiri province and went trekking for 2 days in the Jungle before crossing the Vietnamese border for my next stop!
