Get to know the Cambodian capital city of Phnom Penh, a major cultural center buzzing with restaurants, bars, and Cambodian before departing on a Mekong River cruise. Many cruises start and/or finish in Phnom Penh and navigate either upriver to Tonle Sap River and Tonle Sap Lake, (a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve) or downriver towards Vietnam and the South China Sea. Travel through the city in a traditional rickshaw (cyclo), visiting the Wat Phnom Temple, the Royal Palace, and the majestic Silver Pagoda. At the National Museum, you will see Khmer artifacts from the 4th to 13th centuries and learn about the dark chapter of the Khmer Rouge at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. From here, depart on your cruise or land tour. Let us know when you're ready to start planning your trip to Phnom Penh!
