Week 9 - Udong

On week 9 we went to Udong.

Here is what the LP has to say: Udong, 40km (25mi) north of Phnom Penh, was the capital of Cambodia between 1618 and 1866. It's generally very quiet here, and you'll often have the town's stupas to yourself (along with picnickers at weekends). You'll find the ruins sprinkled across two ridges..... We went at the weekend so there was plenty of action including the National ballet performing for a Governement Minister.
