Phnom Penh

3.4

Charming City

On the confluence of two major rivers, Phnom Penh occupies a scenic location largely responsible for its nickname the "Charming City." On a trip to Phnom Penh you'll discover one of Asia's most dynamic cities, where the natives live much of their lives outdoors, on the streets, and in the bustling markets filled with scents of spicy foods. Although the Vietnam War spoiled some of its appeal, Phnom Penh rebuilt itself and its image in subsequent years, developing into a thriving regional capital known for its cafe culture and bar scene. Phnom Penh is in Cambodia. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Phnom Penh and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
