Phnom Penh

The vibrant capital city of Cambodia, Phnom Penh has emerged from its harrowing recent past to proudly present itself as a fascinating destination for any Southeast Asia holiday.

Educate yourself with a necessary visit to the The National Museum of Cambodia and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, marvel at the splendour of The Royal Palace and sip a café au lait riverside at Sisowath Quay, Phnom Penh will stir the mind and soul.

Affectionately regarded as the ‘Paris of the East’ during its French colonial days, Phnom Penh may retain the charms of its European-influenced days, but today moves to an unmistakably lively Cambodian tempo.
