Copywriting for Youtube Scripts: Phnom Penh
I often find myself copywriting for Youtube scripts. This is an example of a piece I wrote about travelling in Phnom Penh. The task was to make the Youtuber sound like they’d visited (neither of us have) and encourage subscriptions to the channel.
*Shot of someone shooting a bazooka*
Ever dreamt of fulfilling a childhood fantasy and shooting a bazooka?
Come to Phnom Penh!
Hey it’s [name of channel] again! We’ve spent the last 3 years travelling the world and helping thousands of people choose their next travel destination. This video is part of our South East Asia playlist so please keep watching for further tips.
Today we’re giving you our expert guide of what to do in Cambodia’s Phnom Penh.
*So why visit Phnom Penh?*
Phnom Penh is a beautiful city in Cambodia that has been labelled the jewel of Asia. Not only is there always something cool to do, it’s super cheap. So, here are our top 5 activities to make the most of your visit:
1. Shoot a bazooka
Seriously, who hasn’t wanted to play with a rocket launcher ever since watching Die Hard? At the Cambodia Firing Range in Phnom Penh you can tick a major item off your bucket list and live out that childhood fantasy.
2. Eat a tarantula
This may not be to everyone’s taste, but travelling is all about trying new, crazy things, and what’s crazier than eating a deep fried tarantula? This is such a popular thing to try in Cambodia they have to have them delivered in from Thailand.
3. Visit the famous markets
Asia is known for its awesome markets, and Cambodia is no different. The markets come to life at night so be sure to head there when sun starts to set for the chance to try some local delicacies and enjoy the Phnom Penh nightlife.
4. Witness the genocide museum and killing fields
Travelling isn’t all about fun, it’s about learning about different cultures and their histories. And like most places, Cambodia has had its dark times. Visit the genocide museum and killing fields to learn more about the atrocities that happened here as recently as the 1970s.
5. Get up close and personal at the wildlife centre
Animals that have been rescued from poachers and illegal traffickers are taken to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre to be nursed back to health before their release back into the wild. The centre’s “life of a zookeeper” programme lets you get up close and personal with the amazing local wildlife whilst helping the centre continue with its mission.
