Overwhelmed by this city!!! Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia with a population of 2.2 million people and covering over 675 squared Km, feels strange as the third world is clear and so many buildings are few stories, but it’s crowded like a buzzing metropolis. Crazy, crowded traffic, so many people and a lot of buildings. At first glimpse I only saw five sky scrapers as I entered the city but the view from the roof of my ten floor hotel, there are more but they are certainly not overrunning the city. The low buildings give it a closed in, busy feel.
