What to expect

See the best of Phnom Penh on this full-day guided tour.

After being picked up from your guide at your hotel, you will explore Wat Phnom, the birthplace of the capital. According to the legend, Phnom Penh was founded here when a woman named Penh found four Buddha statues and built the temple to house them.
Discover the Royal Palace of Cambodia - a complex of buildings, which was built to serve as the residence of the King of Cambodia, his family and foreign dignitaries, as well as a venue for the performance of court ceremony and ritual and as a symbol of the Kingdom.

You will see the silver pagoda, which is often called the Pagoda of the Emerald Buddha or Wat Preah Kaew Morokot after the statue housed there. The wooden temple was originally built by King Norodom in 1892 and inside its floor is comprised of more than 5000 silver blocks which together weigh nearly 6 tons.

Another stop will be the elegant National Museum, designed in the 1920s in the Khmer style by George Groslier. It contains a vast collection of Khmer sculpture and art. Wander the halls to acquire an insight into an artistic heritage that stretches back centuries.

Learn about a chapter from Cambodia's more recent, tragic, past at the Tuol Sleng Museum (Museum of Genocide). Formerly the Tuol Svay Prey High School, in 1975, this became the interrogation and torture facility for the Khmer Rouge regime - at that time known as Security Prison 21, or simply S-21. Kept largely unchanged, this prison now showcases photographs and exhibits about the thousands of victims that passed through these doors - only seven of whom came out alive.

Additionally, your guide will take you to explore Psah Thmey, a covered market which is distinguished by its central dome (constructed in 1937). It is filled with shops selling jewelry, fabrics and many kinds of souvenirs.

After your tour ends, your guide will drop you back off at your hotel.
