Phnom Penh Discovery
You will be picked up at your hotel between 8.30am and 9.00am. Today we explore Phnom Penh, a chaotic, energetic and fascinating city. Graceful tree-lined boulevards and riverfront promenades are reminders of bygone eras; today they teem with activity. Motorcycles weave in and out of traffic, vendors hawk their wares, and drivers call for business.
Starting from your centrally located hotel or from various points around the city we take a cyclo tour of the impressive French Khmer colonial buildings of Phnom Penh. See the site of the filming of City of Ghosts staring Matt Dillon and Gerard Depardieu. Spot monkeys, have your fortune told and perhaps feed Sambo the elephant at Wat Phnom. Explore Central Market located in a distinctive domed Art Deco building.
Hear about Cambodia’s connection with France and Vietnam at the Independence Monument, and the Cambodia/Vietnam friendship monument.
Enjoy traditional Khmer delicacies for lunch at a not for profit organization set up to assist Cambodia’s street children before heading out to explore again.
Shop at the sprawling Russian Market, a labyrinth of stalls selling everything from CDs and DVDs to silks, crafts, jewelry and more.
We finish our tour with a walk on the riverfront at the Chatomok where the Tonle Bassac, Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers meet. In the early evening market stalls set up selling fried cockroaches, spiders, crickets or grasshoppers or other culinary delights.
