Cambodia

After the Mekong delta we went back to spent half a day more in Saigon and finally left Vietnam towards Cambodia. In Phnom Penh we visited the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda and the Wat Phnom temple. The picture shows the Independence Monument.
Also we visited the Khmer Rouge prison S21 and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, both museums nowadays.
