About Travel to Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh is by far Cambodia’s largest city with over 1.5 million permanent residents. The main tourist attractions in the city, however, are located within a fairly compact area and it’s possible to tour the city on foot although the lack of well maintained walkways and busy roads can make that difficult. Phnom Penh Railway Station is a short walk from Central Market, although the main road running between the train station and the market can be very difficult to cross on foot at busy times of the day. Central Market was opened in 1937 and as well as being the focal point of the city centre it’s also worth visiting to see the see this fantastic Art Deco style building from the inside.
A short walk to the North of Central takes you to Wat Phnom. Wat Phnom dates back to 1372 and is generally considered to be the first building in Phnom Penh. According to legend this temple on a man made hill was established by Grandmother Penh, who is credited with being the founder of the city. Wat Phnom has been rebuilt and renovated many time since the 14th Century and main temple at War Phnom Penh was completed in 1927. Wat Phnom also features a large garden at the base of the temple hill which is pleasant to visit.
Bay far the best way to walk from Wat Phnom to the Royal Palace is to go East from Wat Phnom to reach the the promenade along Sisowath Quay. Sisowath Quay has Phnom Penh’s only major pedestrian walkway and it runs North to South 3.7 km alongside the Tonle Sap River. There are very some good bars and restaurants on Sisowath Quay as well as a great flower market near to the Eastern Gate of the Royal Palace, which is the tourist entrance to the palace.
Phnom Penh’s Royal Palace was established towards the end of the 19th Century. Under the protection of the French colonial armed forces, Cambodia’s Royal Family decided to relocate their capital back to Phnom Penh. The Royal Palace in Phnom Penh has some similarities to the Grand Palace in Bangkok, although it’s on a smaller scale and less old. The buildings which currently stand where largely constructed at the beginning of the 20th Century replacing the original buildings which were largely made from wood. Nonetheless, the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh is very impressive and a must see for visitors to the city.
