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.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Thu): get engrossed in the history at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, steep yourself in history at Royal Palace, and then take in the exciting artwork at Din Art Gallery. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at National Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wat Phnom, then appreciate the history behind Independence Monument, then steep yourself in history at Choeung Ek Genocidal Center, and finally stop by D.Hindley.

Cambodia travel guide

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.
