On the confluence of two major rivers, Phnom Penh occupies a scenic location largely responsible for its nickname the "Charming City." On a trip to Phnom Penh you'll discover one of Asia's most dynamic cities, where the natives live much of their lives outdoors, on the streets, and in the bustling markets filled with scents of spicy foods.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Choeung Ek Genocidal Center and Royal Palace. Museum-lovers will get to explore Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and National Museum. Step out of Phnom Penh with an excursion to Heng Naysim Tranditional Cambodian Weaving House in Kandal Steung--about 52 minutes away. There's lots more to do: hunt for treasures at Central Market, stroll around Royal Palace Park, and appreciate the history behind Independence Monument.
