See top sights and attractions of the city historically known as the ‘pearl of Asia’, including the Royal Palace, the National Museum and the beautiful Buddhist temple of Wat Phnom. This tour is a great introduction to Phnom Penh and its main landmarks.
Visit the vast Royal Palace complex, which encompasses a number of structures within a magnificent pagoda-style compound. An awe-inspiring sight, the throne room has a tiered roof topped by a 59-metre tower. Of particular note is the Silver Pagoda, the royal chapel, which is walled off in a separate enclosure. It takes its name from the 5,000 silver tiles that cover the floor of the main temple. Each tile is made from one kilo of silver.
Continue to the superb National Museum, which was designed by French archaeologist and painter George Groslier in 1917, and was constructed in a traditional Khmer style by Cambodian craftsmen. This compact museum has wealth of Khmer stone, bronze and wooden sculptures, and gives you a fascinating glimpse into Cambodian culture.
The final visit is to Wat Phnom, an imposing temple founded in 1373 and located on a small hill in the heart of the city. Legend has it that this marks the founding spot of Phnom Penh itself. Inside, you can view a bronze seated Buddha, superb murals and a large altar.
