THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof." - Al-Baqarah (2:215)

Phnom Penh: Day 3

For day 3, we decided to visit the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre. As we were budget travellers, and as recommended by the owner of our guesthouse, we decided to take the tuk tuk. From what I’ve been reading online, a tuk tuk would usually take about 1 1/2 hours to get to Phnom Tamao. But ours were rather slow, it took slightly over an hour to get there.

But got there we finally did, bought our tickets, paid for a guide (thank God we did, otherwise we wouldn’t know where to head as the place covered a HUGE area).

We spent about 2 hours at Phnom Tamao, and then another 2 hours on the tuk tuk heading back to Phnom Penh and had late lunch at D’Nyonya. As we were leaving Phnom Penh the next day, after lunch we had a quick souvenir shopping spree at the Central Market.

Later that night, we decided to watch a Cambodian Cultural Show held at the National Museum area.

Immediately after the show, we had dinner at a halal restaurant nearest to the museum, Warung Bali (an Indonesian restaurant).

And that, ended day 3 of our visit to Phnom Penh.
