What is a cyclo? Well, it’s a bit different from an auto rickshaw. A cyclo is a three wheeled vehicle which uses man power to push it. The number of cyclos tend to decrease each year due to the emergence of moto dops and tuk tuks, but it still exists as a significant transport option in Phnom Penh. Taking a cyclo tour around the capital allows me to relax and sit back in the large seat, while the slow speed lets me enjoy sight-seeing through the city.

Internet download managers
Most people find difficult to download documents, music or programs from the internet. An internet download manager is a great downloading tool for your computer. This type of software uses quick functions to help you get what you need from the internet in a short period of time. The managers include a comprehensive error recovery and resume option during an unexpected power outage or connection failure, so you can’t lose important files. The software also prevents your computer from downloading any harmful files.

'Mega Structure' documentary
I am so interested in mega structures that I will sit in front of the television for an hour watching National Geographic. It reveals the biggest, tallest, longest and deepest mega structures in the world. This documentary teaches you the various structures in the world and how they were built. I think this documentary will inspire young Cambodians to build modern marvels throughout Cambodia in the future. I often wonder about Cambodia’s historical structures, but I hope one day Cambodia will have more mega structures.
