Explore Phnom Penh Overview
This adventure uncovers the past of Cambodia's capital city Phnom Penh.
Take to the lively streets of Phnom Penh on this short-and-sweet excursion, and find a modern Asian city with a European facade. Dig a little deeper and learn of a tragic timeline of events in years gone by, which this city has fought hard to recover from. Start by visiting Wat Phnom, a majestic monastery overlooking the city, before stopping by the eclectic Russian Market to barter for beautiful garments, arts and handicrafts. Uncover details of Cambodia’s haunting past on a visit to the Genocide Museum and the Choeung Ek Memorial before finishing the tour enjoying traditional Khmer snacks on a sunset cruise along the mighty Mekong river.
