Explore Cambodia's capital city

A small capital in comparison to its Asian neighbours, Phnom Penh sits at the point where the Mekong and Tonle Sap Rivers meet. With scars still showing from a turbulent recent history the city is steadily modernising yet retains its colonial charm. You can spend a few relaxing days exploring at a slower pace here before continuing on your Indochina adventure.
