Phnom Penh

— 4 nights

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.
Phnom Penh is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Choeung Ek Genocidal Center, explore the historical opulence of Royal Palace, see Off-Road Tours, and get engrossed in the history at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.

To find other places to visit and tourist information, read our Phnom Penh trip itinerary planner.

Toronto, Canada to Phnom Penh is an approximately 24-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 12 hours traveling from Toronto to Phnom Penh. Traveling from Toronto in July, things will get a bit warmer in Phnom Penh: highs are around 39°C and lows about 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to drive to Battambang.

For over six centuries, the mighty Khmer Empire flourished in Cambodia, a scenic land of majestic temples, pristine waterfalls, and dense jungles. A protectorate of France between 1863 and 1953, the country suffered under the Khmer Rouge, a ruling party remembered mostly for its part in organizing the bloody Cambodian genocide of the 1970s. Today, a trip to Cambodia will reveal the region's troubled history, but also some of Southeast Asia's most significant archaeological sites. Few tourist attractions in Cambodia match the splendor of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage-listed temple complex that represents the biggest religious monument on the planet.
