Phnom Penh

Life by the river Mekong

Take a flight into the once renowned ‘Paris of the East’. Start with Phnom Penh's glorious past by visiting the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda, which are laid with 5,329 silver tiles. Stop by the Wat Phnom, built upon the only hill in Phnom Penh for a peek into the religious lives of the Cambodians. Then visit the country's grim past at the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, which displays the history of the Khmer Rouge regime.

Go to the Riverside to reflect upon your insights over a cup of coffee or a mug of cold beer at one of the many cafes and bars by the Sisowath Quay. Before you leave, pack your bags to the brim with the affordable designer clothes sold at the Russian Market.
