Bohemiaz is at the top of the list for a reason. You probably don't need to search for a place anymore. But if you want to know why, I guess I can tell you.
Having a Khmer photo shoot done has been on my Cambodia to-do list for quite a while now. Cambodian couples usually do this the day before their wedding and the picture then gets displayed at their wedding reception. The happy couple gets a make-over and dresses up in traditional Cambodian clothes, making them look like a Khmer prince and princess.
I will never be found on a foot pole because life happens in the mud, the blood, and the beer. Turning away from nothing, embracing everything, feeling gratitude for my messy human life. Bring it on.
Built during French colonialism, the hotel is a mix of French, Khmer, and Art Deco styles with dramatic black and white tiles, a grand teak staircase, high ceilings, and claw foot bathtubs. We were very pleased to not only have the opportunity to review a 2-night stay at Raffles Hotel Le Royal, but to have the privilege of staying in the beautiful Jacqueline Kennedy suite. Getting here: The hotel is located about a minute taxi drive from the Phnom Penh International Airport.
When I first visited Cambodia, I foolishly only allowed myself four days to spend in the entire country. Despite having seen only a tiny, tiny part of the country over such a short time period, I instantly fell in love with Cambodia and left wishing I had more time, desperate to see more. This time around I wanted to spend all of that time exploring the coast and was planning on visiting Sihanoukville, Koh Rong, Kampot and Kep.
One thing I like to try and do, prior to visiting a new country, is read up on its history. To find out where it has come from, and what its people have gone through. It has been through 4 wars.
After almost 24 hours of leaving our Northern Ireland hometown of Bangor we arrived at Phnom Penh airport feeling hot, sticky and tired but this was put to the back of our minds when we were greeted by special friends bearing bouquets of flowers and welcome home hugs! Because we were out of the country for 9 weeks, we gave up our home so high up on our to do list is to find somewhere to live! The journey from the airport was crazy and it almost felt like that we were never away; back to familiar sights, sounds and smells!
