Top things to do in PP when visitors are in town

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Oudong is worthwhile with the trip up through all those fish farms.

I know it's considered a 'tourist trap' but, as a tourist, I really did enjoy the Foreign Correspondents' Club (FCC). Recommended snack: French Fries! I had a drink and fries, and within 10 minutes 3-4 people nearby also ordered the fries.

IN PP, Mrs S said IN PP!

Evening meal at Sharkies. (Took my aging father there a few years ago. Sat near the pool tables near the toilet entrance. We ate and drank. After dinner my father asked, "Are those girls playing pool what I think they are?")

Central Market.
Russian Market.
Happy Pizza watching the world go by on the riverside. (Minus the father.)
Wat Phnom
Sorya/Sovanna/City Mall ('cos foreigners have never seen such amazing shopping malls)
Toul Sleng
A Khmer style Soup place. (If you know how, your visitors will love it!)
