Phnom Penh

A mixture of colonial French architecture and Buddhist dwellings, Phnom Penh is a city that turned a recent heart-wrenching history into a show of vibrancy and victory.

It’s a city where monks congregate in parks and street-food vendors crowd the streets. With our insider knowledge and exclusive tours, travellers will hear the stories of the 1970’s Khmer Rouge regime, discover the resilience of the Cambodian people and relax on the Mekong River for evening sundowners. A stroll down the banks of the Mekong River takes you past groups of ladies practising Tai Chi, landmine victims selling local crafts and beautiful boats cruising along. For the more spiritually inclined, peek into one of the local pagodas to witness and partake in meditation alongside local worshippers. Shopaholics will lose themselves in the frenetic atmosphere and bargain hunting on offer in one of the local markets. Foodies will be fascinated by stalls supervised by crouching Khmer women that overflow with a weird yet captivating array of indigenous delicacies, from crickets and skinned frogs to boiled duck foetus; contrasted with arrays of more palatable fresh fruits including mangosteens, coconuts, durian, rambutan and mango. Phnom Penh truly has something for everyone; the young in search of electric nightlife, historian’s intent on discovering the country’s rich past, photographers in search of the best sunrise Mekong shot and everyone in between.
