About Travel to Phnom Penh
The two most popular tourist attractions in Phnom Penh are the Royal Palace and Wat Phnom.
Phnom Penh’s Royal Palace is the current residence of Cambodia’s royal family. 2 of the 4 sections of the palace complex are open to tourists. The Royal Palace became a royal residence in 1871 and has been updated several times since. The main attractions in the Royal Palace are the grand Throne Hall and the Silver Pagoda. There’s lots to see at the palace so plan to spend around 3 hours there to make the most of your visit.
Wat Phnom is Phnom Penh’s oldest and most important temple. Wat Phnom is believed to have been established in 1372 by a lady affectionately known as Grandmother Penh. Grandmother Penh is widely credited as being the founder of the city. According to legend she commissioned the construction of a hill, and temple on top of the hill, to protect two statues of the Lord Buddha from floods, which were frequent in Phnom Penh at the time. The temple and hill have been rebuilt several times since the 14th Century and the main temple is now accessible via a grand naga staircase.
Other places worth visiting in Phnom Penh include:
- Sisowath Quay, which is a 3.7 km long riverside walkway connecting the Royal Palace to the commercial centre of the city.
- Central Market, often considered to be the central point of the city, is housed with a magnificent art deco style building completed in 1937.
- Orussey Market is the largest market in Phnom Penh and its well worth visiting to see the amazing range of products on sale and experience an authentic slice of local life.
- Located 12 km by road to the south of central Phnom Penh, Choeung Ek is the most famous of the 300 or so ‘killing fields’ in Cambodia which the brutal Khmer Rouge regime used to kill hundreds of thousands of men, women and children during the 1970s.
