Our time in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is a very busy city. We had a great opportunity to stay at Starwood Inn for three nights. We had packed days filled with learning, exploring, walking, and having fun. The first day we were all extremely tired from our long day of travelling. This day was our orientation day. The second day we travelled on tuktuks to the S21 prison and killing fields, where we learned about the Khmer Rouge. Finally, on our third and last full day in Phnom Penh, we spent the morning at a local market completing team challenges. After lunch, we got the chance to watch a documentary about voluntourism, and if it really benefits the places it is in or not. Overall Phnom Penh was amazing to see and an incredible opportunity to learn in greater detail about the city.
