Phnom Penh

— 2 nights

Charming City

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.
Visit Wat Phnom and Choeung Ek Genocidal Center for their historical value. Step off the beaten path and head to Garden City Golf Club and Phare Ponleu Selpak. And it doesn't end there: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, see the interesting displays at National Museum, look for gifts at Amazing Cambodia, and don't miss a visit to Sisowath Quay.

For photos, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Phnom Penh trip planning tool.

Cambodia travel guide

4.1
Ruins · Historic Sites · Spas
For over six centuries, the mighty Khmer Empire flourished in Cambodia, a scenic land of majestic temples, pristine waterfalls, and dense jungles. A protectorate of France between 1863 and 1953, the country suffered under the Khmer Rouge, a ruling party remembered mostly for its part in organizing the bloody Cambodian genocide of the 1970s. Today, a trip to Cambodia will reveal the region's troubled history, but also some of Southeast Asia's most significant archaeological sites. Few tourist attractions in Cambodia match the splendor of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage-listed temple complex that represents the biggest religious monument on the planet.
