Explore Phnom Penh, a fascinatingly dynamic city with tree-lined boulevards and riverfront promenades which are reminders of the bygone
era, that today teems with life.
Start your tour at Wat Phnom, where a legend states that the city began here when a woman named Penh found
four Buddha statues and built the temple to house them.
Afterwards, witness the splendour of Cambodia's royal heritage by
visiting the Royal Palace, still the official residence of the King, the adjacent Silver Pagoda, and
the National Museum, which contains a comprehensive
collection of Khmer art.
Afternoon onwards, learn about Cambodia's tragic past and the Khmer Rouge regime at the Tuol Sleng Museum.
Finally, visit one of Phnom
Penh's two great markets, the Central Market which is located in a distinctive domed Art Deco
building or the
sprawling Russian Market.
