Geocache Description:

Located about 2km from the Cambodia Genocide Museum in the killing fields.

The cache is about 2km from the national genocide museum, which is in the heart of Cambodia's notorious killing fields.
Iplaced it within a short distance of the museum, so that the seeker could maybe grab a moto taxi from the museum car park if they are on a tour of the area, and want to find the cache while their other tour members look around the museum.
Otherwise, if you rent a motobike yourself (about $2 a day), it's within easy riding distance of Phnom Penh.
When you get close, you'll see a Wat (temple) off the track, and a stone arch.
Turn under the arch, and you'll find a small shrine under a tree on your left.
Facing the shrine and the tree, the tree is to the left.
The cache is between the shrine and the tree, in a small plastic bag about 4 feet up, and jammed in the trunk of the tree.
As I always say, this is Cambodia - the locals just don't get what we do for fun, so check carefully for muggles.
Have fun, and stay tuned for more to come, 'cos I'm off to work in Siem Reap again at the end of November, and Angkor Wat needs more caches !!
