Cambodia’s busy capital Phnom Penh is located at the junction of the Mekong and Tonlé Sap rivers. Here is where you can enjoy the majestic beauty of Khmer architecture reflected in Phnom Penh’s tourist attractions such as the ornate Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda or the National Museum of Cambodia, which displays artifacts from around the country.
DAY 1 – PHNOM PENH ARRIVAL – MEKONG RIVER HALF-DAY
We suggest that you leave the bustling capital behind for a trip to the Cambodian countryside along Mekong River, where you can eyewitness the local people weaving silk on hand looms and dying it with vibrant colours. It’s your choice whether to try using the looms to weave the silk into distinct Ikat patterns or to wander around the village and chat with the villagers.
Your tour ends with a sunset cruise down the Mekong River back to Phnom Penh.
Dinner: Spend a cosy night with your friends/family at Malis Restaurant – 136, Preah Norodom (St. 41), 12301 Phnom Penh.
DAY 2 – SUGGESTED LOCAL ACTIVITIES: PHNOM PENH CITY TOUR FULL-DAY
Spend the whole day discovering Phnom Penh’s past and present. Take a look at some of the Khmer Rouge’s infamous somber locations and learn about the region’s dark history as well as its current politics. Then get out of the capital, pay a visit to an island on the Mekong, where you’ll experience the local residents’ life along the river.
