Welcome to Phnom Pénh

City description  

The Cambodian capital that's nestled between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City, Phnom Penh is not just a vibrant and booming metropolis. The eastern side of the city will quickly prove this to you because that's where you'll find most of Phnom Penh's historic treasures. 

Known in colonial times as the "Pearl of Southeast Asia", the city takes you aback with its beauty following the renovations that took place during the country's independence. But, really, it's the city's archaeological remains that represent its true wealth. You can admire some of its splendor with a visit to the national museum with its exotic and dreamlike Khmer roof and inimitable twisted spikes. These ancient sculptures, like that of the red lion, won't fail to impress you. After leaving the museum, take the time to visit the unmissable royal palace, before letting your footsteps guide you to Wat Phnom, a Buddhist sanctuary that has one of the oldest pagodas in Cambodia. This is a place that's both living and mystical, where myths and legends fill the atmosphere, as traders stand in front of their doors. The bravest of visitors can continue their journey to Ta Prohm to discover the famous neighboring temple of the mythical city of Angkor. Among a tangle of invasive roots, thick stone walls and moving reliefs, you will find yourself in a real-life, open-air museum, where nature, the undisputed queen, protects this architectural jewel of Khmer fervor. Phnom Penh is one of those places that move and bewitch you, both with its generous tropical climate and the richness of its cultural heritage.
