Ideally located at the confluence of three rivers, the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the great Tonle Sap, Phnom Penh is a vibrant bustling capital of Cambodia. The capital city is the gateway to an exotic land – the ruins of Angkor in the west, the beaches situated along the southern coastline and the delightful life of the ethnic minorities in the north-east.
The quaint rustic charm of the city lies in the glimmering spires of the Royal Palace, the flapping saffron of the monks’ robes, colonial and French-style mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental Angkorian architecture combined with the stunning views of the Mekong River.
Visitors also head here to explore colorful busy market places with a lineup of carvings, paintings, silk, silver, gems and even antiques. But the Phnom Penh experience is even more. From five star hotels and affordable guesthouses, alluring cafes and bustling bars, fine international dining and best street delicacies to neighborhood pubs, international discos, Phnom Penh is a truly incredible Asian exotica.
