About Travel to Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is Cambodia’s largest city, with over 1.5 million permanent residents, and its most vibrant city, or most chaotic, depending on your point of view. Phnom Penh is, for the most part, not a city for pedestrians.

Sisowath Quay

The roads in the city centre are very busy and what pavements there are are often used for parking or selling goods and food. The exception to this is the magnificent Sisowath Quay which has a wide pedestrians only walkway running 3.7 km alongside the Tonle Sap River, which runs through the centre of Phnom Penh. Some visitors don’t like Phnom Penh for this reason. Phnom Penh does though have some great attractions, and a unique character, that make it worth visiting.

Foremost amongst the attractions in Phnom Penh is its Royal Palace. The Royal Palace is relatively new, constructed in the latter part of the 19th Century, when Phnom Penh became the new capital of Cambodia.

Wat Phnom

The other major historical attraction in Phnom Penh is Wat Phnom, which is the oldest and most important temple in the city. According to legend, this temple was established by the city’s founder, Grandmother Penh, on a small hill she had constructed to keep to protect the temple’s Buddha statues from flooding.


Beside the temple and the palace, we suggest that you visit some of Phnom Penh’s markets. In particular Phnom Penh’s Central Market is must see for the architecture, and also Orussey Market, which is the largest in Phnom Penh with a wide range of stalls selling an extraordinarily wide range of products.
