Wide boulevards, exuberant markets and shimmering peaks of golden temples are central features of this charming and exotic capital city. Sitting on the banks of the mighty Mekong river, the glistening Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and National Museum are all must-sees but so too are The Killing Fields and S-21 Prison.
Phnom Penh's recent history has been more than turbulent, and learning about the sobering years under the Khmer Rough are to most essential parts of visiting this glorious country and it's capital city, Phnom Penh. The city has risen brilliantly out of civil war into what is now one of Southeast Asia's most burgeoning cities with chic cafes, bars and fantastic restaurants all on offer. We highly recommend spending a few nights here and trying some of our unique experiences that get you under the skin of this enthralling city.
