Lobby bars are all about anticipation, of a choice single malt, of a romantic evening, of a dangerous liaison. At the new Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra, that first nip of the night is set on the edge of a grand stage. Through a bank of panoramic windows, the Mekong River sweeps by in the near-distance. In close, a marble-topped bar fronts a bespoke tower containing a selection of 120 labels. Trolleys of cheese and champagne wind by throughout the evening, and a piano player, from a unique pedestal, plinks out a nightly soundtrack.

One of the Quay Hotel's many killer breakfasts.  This is a divine combination of banana pancakes, peanut praline sauce and dollop of butter lightly altered mysterious and French ways.

Courteous Chaos on the Streets

Cambodia is changing fast. The genteel disregard for traffic rules may not last long. For the moment it is an image of a nation getting things done with insufficient horsepower.
