Phnom Penh is the vibrant bustling capital of Cambodia. Situated at the confluence of three rivers, the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the great Tonle Sap, what was once considered the 'Gem' of Indochina. The capital city still maintains considerable charm with plenty to see. It exudes a sort of provincial charm and tranquillity with French colonial mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental Angkorian architecture.
- Explore the highlights of Cambodia’s capital

- Glimpsing in to the recent history of Cambodia at Tuol Sleng Museum and the Killing Fields, or search for bargains at the Russian Market.
City Tour of Phnom Penh
9.00 start from your hotel, tour the Phnom Penh city to discover its ancient and recent past. Begin your tour at Cambodia’s Royal Palace, which stands majestically in the city center just off the riverfront area. Several buildings are open to visitors including the Silver Pagoda whose floor is lined with solid silver tiles.
Continue to the National Museum. Located in a fabulous old building, the Museum is filled with art and artifacts dating back to the pre-Angkorian era. At the north end of the city is the hilltop pagoda of Wat Phnom, for which the capital was named. Climb the stairs to the top of the hill for fabulous views of the city below.
There are two choices in the afternoon. For a look into the country’s tragic recent history, a tour of Tuol Sleng Prison (S-21) and the Killing Fields is a sobering reminder of the evils of the Khmer Rouge regime. Although not a joyful tour, visiting these monuments unlocks keys to understanding the development of this still developing country. Or opt for a trip to the Russian Market for shopping.
