Located on the confluence of the Tonlé Sap, Mekong, and Bassac rivers, Phnom Penh is a bustling metropolis, alive with trendy bars, stylish cafes and some of the best cuisine in Asia. All of this is in stark contrast to the ghost town that was Phnom Penh during the Pol Pot era when the city was almost entirely emptied of its inhabitants. Thankfully those dark days are behind this wonderful city and Phnom Penh continues to grow as a major international and domestic tourist destination for Cambodia.
Two days minimum is recommended to get a true feel of the modern Phnom Penh, a walk through the grounds of the Grand Palace, a cold Angkor Beer in one the river front cafes along Sisowath Quay or a daring tuk-tuk ride through the frenetic streets are just some of the highlights of this wonderful city.
Phnom Penh is served by numerous airlines from the majority of major cities within S.E. Asia, but if you are looking to arrive or depart in style then the city is the perfect stepping stone to cross into southern Vietnam by riverboat down the mighty Mekong River.
