Phnom Penh ©
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 Sisowath Quay. And it doesn't end there: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, see the interesting displays at National Museum, pause for some photo ops at Independence Monument, and don't miss a visit to Phare Ponleu Selpak.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Phnom Penh trip planning tool.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Phnom Penh. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in August, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to catch the bus to Koh Rong.
