Around Phnom Penh

This is the Vietnam Friendship Monument in Phnom Penh. It is located in a huge park and there was not another soul in the park except for us the entire time. It's really a nice monument and I love the Soviet/communist look to the statues. It reminds me of Tianenmen Square in Beijing but on a much smaller scale.

This is part of the expansive park where the Vietnam Friendship Monument is located.
This is the Independence Monument reminiscent of the Arch De Triomphe. Too bad it is being renovated because the scaffolding obscures most of it.
The Royal Palace is beautiful but not as lavish as the one in Bangkok. 
This is where the Silver Pagoda is located. Unfortunately pictures aren't allowed there.

Here is a model replica of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap.
