Christmas Eve Phnom Penh Cambodia

Christmas Eve Independence Monument Sihanouk Boulevard

Christmas Eve in Phnom Penh is a wonderful experience!  I met a British tourist who was on the same bus from Kep for dinner and then we walked around enjoying the lights and activity.

It seemed like everyone in the city was out – streets full of motorcycles and autos. My hotel is near the Independence Monument (a memorial to Cambodia’s war dead) and the president’s palace along Preah Sihanouk Boulevard where the traffic was heavy with merriment and celebration.  Upscale shops in that area all had big sales – unfortunately the very largest shoe size in most of the shops was 6 :o(…

Tonight was one of my most unusual Christmas Eves – enjoyable and memorable!
