It was the last day of the Chinese New Year when, and a very early morning at that, when my husband and I decided to go on a road trip. We ended up in Phnom Prasith, some 30kms away from Phnom Penh.
I wrote about our trip there in this blog post.
To get there, from Phnom Penh, take National Road Number 5 until you reach Prek Phnov market. Then turn left and drive 13kms more on a dirt road. The scenery is beautiful along the way, except for the dust as there were road constructions at the time we went there. You will see the hills, and one of them has a very old temple with a giant reclining Buddha. Take time to talk with the caretakers as they may tell you interesting stories.
