Why Phnom Penh is Southeast Asia’s new capital of cool

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Tourism... mehhh who wants to be with begpackers backpackers twatpackers or even normal tourists - might as well stay home - no real adventure there is there?
But a wise man would explore his mind.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I can't keep up with the changing vocabulary of the English language. Last time I heard, the word 'cool' was an amalgamation of hip, trendy, modern, fashionable, stylish, aspiring and something of envy.

This clearly no longer applies if it's being used in the same sentence as Phnom Penh. Can someone update me?
