Visited Phnom Penh for the first time last week as part of a delegation from the School of Public Health (the School has a Tuberculosis Control in Cambodia Programme that it implements in partnership with the University of Health Sciences in Cambodia as well as the famous London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). It was quite a pleasant experience. 

Also had the chance to visit the National Centre for Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control in Cambodia, and to speak to its director for the past 17 years, Dr Mao Tan Eang. From anecdotal experience, TB programme directors in the region are fairly similar in character.

Traveling around Phnom Penh for tourists is largely via tuk-tuk
