Phnom Penh

— 4 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.
Phnom Penh is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an in-depth tour of Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, steep yourself in history at Choeung Ek Genocidal Center, get out on two wheels at Phnom Penh Taxi Expert, and have fun at Cambodia Extreme Outdoor Shooting Range.

To see reviews, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Phnom Penh online itinerary planner.

Bengaluru, India to Phnom Penh is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Indochina Time (ICT), which is usually a 1.5 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Bengaluru in May since evenings lows in Phnom Penh dip to 31°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) to allow time to drive to Kampot.

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.
