The weather in Phnom Penh is tropical and is very hot and humid due to the high pressure of the Gulf of Thailand and the Indian Ocean. Walking on the big streets, you will feel so hot and uncomfortable, while Phnom Penh has a very hot summer, even in the normal days it will make you shudder with the heat. Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia. But when the night arrives in the capital city, it gives people a feeling of darkness and quietness. Many shops get closed around 7 or 8 o'clock in the city. The sidewalks are always full of motorcycles and occupies most of the place on the streets. The streets are also full of gravel and dust. If you don't see two tall buildings, you can only visually think that this is equivalent to the domestic second and third line, and it is similar to Hue in Vietnam. Phnom Penh, the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia, was called the “Paris of the East” 50 years ago. After nearly half a century of war, it has lost its former charm, and it now seems to be broken and barren.
