  • Visit the silver pagoda is a something essential in Pnom Penh, the place is magical. Attention go to the covered shoulders and sometimes simply to put a scarf on the shoulders is not allowed to buy a tee shirt (3euros) on-site

  • This visit is coupled with the royal palace, all for $ 10.25. Nice tour, go the morning closed at 11: 00 in the morning.

  • It only takes a minute but it is definitely worth a look. It stands in stark contrast to the pagodas that flank it covered in colour. The stonework is second to none.  more »
