Looking for an unconventional holiday destination? Catch a flight to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Hike to riverfront temples, explore historical sites and get to know the unsinkable people who call Cambodia’s capital home. Phnom Penh is a city of contrast—from national museums and palaces to gorgeous nature reserves and ancient temples. Pack your bags—this will be an adventure you won’t forget!
You’ll find plenty of hotels in Phnom Penh’s city centre, along the banks of the Mekong River, which is also a hub for popular attractions and lovely waterfront views. Ready for an international road trip? Book Ho Chi Minh City hotels, too, and getting rolling.
Things to Do in Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh’s history is both troubled and triumphant—and you can learn more about it at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, located southwest of the city centre. Closer to the river, browse the exhibitions at the National Museum, because if you want to get to know a new place, look to its artists. Feeling regal? Take a tour of the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda.
In the midst of your whirlwind holiday, meet new friends at the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center and take a break for fresh air at Phnom Chisor, an 11th-century hilltop Khmer temple. You can refuel with spicy sugared fruit (try it!) and as many noodle salads as you can slurp down, then rest up in one of our cosy Phnom Penh hotels.
Getting To & Around Phnom Penh
Touch down at Phnom Penh International Airport (PNH), located just 10 km west of the city centre. Driving and taxis are the most efficient way to get around town, but don’t be surprised by the bumpy ride—Phnom Penh is still in many ways a vintage city.
