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.
Get in touch with nature at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Riverside Park. Popular historic sites such as Choeung Ek Genocidal Center and Royal Palace are in your itinerary. Step out of Phnom Penh with an excursion to Heng Naysim Tranditional Cambodian Weaving House in Kandal Steung--about 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, make a trip to Kurata Pepper, pause for some photo ops at Independence Monument, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Central Market.
