Praise for the MAMA!!!!

A great, simple to understand (and surprisingly humorous) guide to starting out in Cambodia. Gets all the essentials out of the way (like how to obtain visas, what to pack and what hard to find items to bring) then moves straight to restaurants, doctors, accommodation and all the other important stuff you'll need to know once you get there. The book also includes short sections on things like good tailors, finding employment, how much you should budget in the first month and the LGBT scene. The result is a guide that dodges the commercialism of other guidebooks and talks to you like your best friend is showing you round their hometown, complete with personal happy snaps to illustrate points and random tips from the Author's own experience. Read this and you'll be well set up to land on your feet and walk like a local, not one of 2 Million tourists that have a Lonely Planet and never get off the beaten path. Nick - Australia

What a great guide book, not just if you're moving to Cambodia, but anywhere in Asia, anywhere in the world actually, so many great moving tips that you forget in the heat of the moment. Wish I'd had this before I moved to New York in January!!
But really can't wait to get back to Cambodia one day now, it was only 3 days about 12 years ago, and clearly only scratched the PP / Angkor Wat surface, can't wait to explore the islands. Great book, a great read, from a truly great traveller/explorer/writer/forager. Melissa - New York, USA

I really lived the layout of this book's content and in particular the tips around things like tea towels... Did
you know they are hard to find in Cambodia? The photos and real life stories really make me trust the advice in this book and I've written my list of what to do based on this! Can't wait to get there now! Dana - Brisbane, Australia

I hope you enjoy Inside Phnom Penh and would love to hear from you!

I love her wholesome approach to food, life and adventure, and it's a highlight of my week to follow her travels to places I'd rather be.
