Outside Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is a city with 2 million inhabitants, a number that’s way too large for its infrastructure. That causes a continuous bustle. Traffic that’s impossible to navigate, especially during rush hour, but also a cacophony of sounds. The city doesn’t have any real green parks, the spaces that are supposed to be parks, are small and surrounded by busy roads. That means it’s difficult to escape the hectic atmosphere, unless you cross the river. Not by the bridge, that will only take you to a busy suburb. But when you take the ferry across the river, right from the heart of the city, you enter another world. Village, quiet, agrarian, green, all besides the rivers. Five minutes away and no busy city to be seen or heard.
