About Travel to Phnom Penh


Phnom Penh is by far Cambodia’s largest city with an estimated 1.5 million permanent residents and it’s a city with a unique character and very different to other South East Asian capital cities such as Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur or Vientiane. For one thing, Phnom Penh is one of the least visitor friendly cities in the region in terms of public transport, traffic congestion, the almost complete absence of pedestrian walkways, and the cleaniless of the city. For these reasons a fair proportion of travellers go out of their way to avoid spending any more time than is necessary in Phnom Penh. We believe that’s a mistake. Phnom Penh has a lot to offer in terms of things to see and do, has good amenities for visitors, and in general is great value for money.

The main tourist attractions in Phnom Penh include:

  • The Royal Palace which was built in the late 19th Century and contains some of the best examples of post-Angkor era Cambodian architecture.
  • Phnom Penh’s Central Market is a fantastic example of 1930s colonial Art Deco architecture and well visiting ofr that reason.
  • Sisowath Quay has a 3.7 km pedestrianised walkway running alongside the Tonle Sap. It’s a great way to see the city and the only place where you can walk safety without dodging cars and motorbikes the whole time.
  • Wat Phnom is the oldest building in Phnom Penh, which according to legend was established by the city’s founder, the revered Lady Penh.
  • Unlike Central Market, Orussey Market is a market primarily for locals which is housed within a chaotic ugly concrete building. Orussey Market is also the largest market in Phnom Penh and a fascinating cultural attraction. You won’t see many other foreign visitors in Orussey Market but you will see shoppers and traders from all over Cambodia buying and selling an enormous array of different goods. Orussey Market is also close to the bus stops for many of the companies plying the route between Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City.
