Day5 & Day6 in Cambodia

Day 5:
Royal Palace
Silver Pagoda
Miniature Angkor Wat inside Silver Pagoda
The Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda is located in the same compound. While coming out from the Silver Pagoda, we passed by a series of royal displays.
From the Silver Pagoda, we headed out to the National Museum. Traffic was chaotic. We passed by some Cambodia-Vietnam friendship monument as well as the Independance Monument.
National Museum
Artisans nearby the National Museum
Wat Phnom, where Phnom Penh is said to get the name from.
Sisowath Quay, overlooking the Tonle Sap river. Mekong River flows on the other side of the other bank, and the two rivers converge to form the Tonle Bassac.
Central Market, also known as Psar Thmei. Known for the unique architecture, and of course, it's a market.

Day 6, also the last day of the entire trip.
Visit to the Psar Tuol Tom Pong.
We sent some postcards to our friends and family. Cheated with the pricing of parcels to the United States, and not Malaysia. hmph.
And finally headed to the Phnom Penh International Airport, bade Cambodia goodbye altogether...
Reaching Malaysia when the sun was setting...
A whole new experience gained no doubt.
