Phnom Penh Day Tour,
Cambodia, Phnom Penh and The South
Info : Phnom Penh Day Tour
A day trip through Phnom Penh will reveal some of the city's magnificent history.
The tour starts at the School of Fine Arts, a cultural institution dedicated to teaching children music and traditional Apsara dancing. Next is the stunning complex of elegant palaces and pagodas at the Royal Palace. Overlooking the Mekong River, the complex contains many sites within its walled borders. The Pagoda of the Emerald Buddha and Silver Pagoda are favourites, with a floor of 5000 silver tiles and a magnificent 17th century Buddha made from baccarat crystal.
In the afternoon you will visit the countryâs National Museum, home to a treasure trove of artifacts and art. The museum is best known and admired for the displays of Khmer art and sculptures from both the Angkorian and pre-Angkorian eras. Later you visit the cityâs Central Market and Russian Market â an imposing art-deco structure and home to a variety of stalls selling goods at great prices. Great for soaking up the atmosphere.
The tour can be taken as a half day, choosing either the morning or afternoon section, and combined with the half day Tuol Sleng & Chueng Ek tour.

Both our guides, in Cambodia were excellent. However, I would like to nominate Channak for an award because we felt he gave an outstanding level of service, showing us things that weren't on the itinerary which we would never have found by ourselves and going out of his way to do so. His general sociability and ability to talk to local people, including more reserved tribal people, meant that we had a much greater insight into the community than we expected and we felt privileged to be there with him. He also has personal experience (from childhood) of the Khmer Rouge regime which made our visits to Toul Sleng and Choeung Ek in particular even more poignant than they would have been otherwise.
