While in Vietnam 10 days ago, I slipped and fell on, literally, a “slippery slope.” I took a hard fall on my wrist. It didn’t get any better, so I popped over to the Royal Phnom Penh Hospital near the airport to get it x-rayed. Turns out I have a bad sprain. It’s thankfully not broken.
The hospital was amazing—beautiful, clean, and modern. They even come around and serve you water. The best part: it only cost $47, including x-rays and the consultation with a surgeon, who is a Thai doctor. The hospital can treat most minor ailments. For more major problems, they will fly the patient to a sister hospital in Thailand.
I joked that the next time I need an x-ray, it’ll probably be cheaper to fly to Cambodia and get it done at this hospital.
