Starting from Wat Phnom and the beautiful Royal Palace, the trip continues to the National Museum and the Silver Pagoda, so named because of its floor that comprises 5,000 silver tiles and topped by a gold Buddha encrusted with 9,584 diamonds – arguably the most beautiful pagoda in the city.

Phnom Penh is a growing and thriving city, nestled at the confluence of three rivers. With a tragic yet fascinating history, its landmarks are well worth a visit. Set off from your hotel into the country’s capital, starting with a visit to the Royal Palace, a stone’s throw from the Tonle Sap River. Built in 1813 the palace contains several buildings which have been used for the coronation of kings and other ceremonies. Within the grounds is the Silver Pagoda, aptly named because of the 5000 silver tiles weighing 1kg each which cover the entire floor.

Head on from here to the National Museum built during 1917-1920 and housed in an elegant terracotta building, in keeping with traditional design. After wandering around the museum, continue to Wat Phnom, the city’s main temple situated on top of a hill along with throngs of worshippers. After lunch, you will then see the sobering and poignant Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, which documents the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge against the Cambodian people. Finish your afternoon on a lighter note with a visit to the vast Central Market where you can buy just about anything in the abundance of colourful stalls.
