Phnom Penh


Phnom Penh offers Cambodian travellers, excitement, history and culture.  From the banks of the mighty Mekong River, which are always full of activity to the towering spires of the royal palace, quenched in stories of a bygone era. Phnom Penh is simply a wonderful South East Asian capital city.

The scenery in and around the city is full of variety, wide tree lined boulevards blend with remote temple complexes including Banteay, Chhmar and Sambor. It is throughout these temples that historic Phnom Penh unearths itself for those who wish to discover it, strewn with tarnished war stories and glimmering with religious discovery.


This is a city of life, which is seen through varying aspects, whether through the hustle and bustle of the floating markets or the history of the grand palaces, or simply through the eyes of the saffron robed monks who meander the streets as part of their daily ritual. Phnom Penh is a truly fascinating city waiting to be experienced.   

  • Visit Wat Phnom, the temple from which Phnom Penh gets its name
  • While sobering and often harrowing, a visit to the Killing Fields gives an insight into Cambodia’s recent history
  • Travel outside the city to Okgna Tei, a traditional weaving village on the Mekon
  • Wander the historic site of Udong, the former Cambodian capital
  • Bargain for anything you can imagine, including ‘rubies’ at the Russian Market


Travel by helicopter to the Cardamom Mountains and the Botum Sakor National Park. Home to the Koh Kong Conservation corridor and wildlife such as elephants, leopards, deer and sun bears. Not to be missed by wildlife enthusiasts.
