Things to Do in Phnom Penh
Stroll through the elaborately decorated Royal Palace, which contains three separate compounds: the palace grounds; Wat Preah Keo, the amazing Silver Pagoda consisting of 5,329 silver tiles; and a further area displaying music, traditional costumes and artefacts. Temples are very much at the forefront in this city, and in particular Wat Phnom, the Buddhist temple built in 1372. It stands at 27 metres tall and is the city’s highest religious building.
Phnom Penh Travel Tips
Relax with a walk around the city’s attractive riverfront, lined with lively restaurants and bars. The fabulous art deco Central Market sits in the centre of the city and is worth a visit, especially if you are a fan of art from that period.
Getting Around Phnom Penh
The city is comfortably walkable, but if you want to ‘get local’, why not hop on a cyclo/tuk-tuk (bicycle rickshaw) or remork-moto (carriage motorbike) for a relaxed way to see the city’s sights.
