What to do in Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh is the capital city of Cambodia, and it’s one of the country’s top tourist destinations. And you won’t find that surprising when you experience the city yourself and see its French influences, palaces, museums, as well as fascinating and warm locals.
Check out the impressive Buddhist-style Independence Monument. It’s also an impressive view at night. Spend hours observing the exhibits of thousands of Khmer art at the National Museum of Cambodia. Wander the gorgeous grounds of the museum too.
Another place in Phnom Penh for the best travel photos is the Royal Palace. Its manicured gardens are almost as dazzling as the magnificent Silver Pagoda and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.
Continue your spiritual trip to the stunning Wat Botum, Wat Phnom, Wat Ounalom, and Wat Langka. After your temple tour, stroll along the Sisowath Quay to observe the locals, taste the food, and enjoy the view of the Tonle Sap River. Take a river cruise too, and go enrol for a Khmer cooking class.
Are you looking for souvenirs? Spend your Cambodian Riel at the great market of Phsar Toul Tom Poung and the Phnom Penh Night Market. If you want the more familiar western-style shopping, go to Sorya Shopping Centre too.
Experience Phnom Penh like a local and join them in celebrating the city’s best events.
