Phnom Penh Vacations

As soon as your feet hit the ground in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, you'll feel alive. Motorbikes whiz past in all directions, monks stroll along the sidewalk, and traces of French colonialism and the Khmer Empire overlook the scene. Poised on the mighty Mekong River, Phnom Penh is dreamlike, and you'll be pulled in right away. So, book one of the many packages to Phnom Penh to get your epic vacation started.

Major Attractions

Phnom Penh's resilience is something to admire, and one site you must visit is the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, where you can view chilling exhibits that detail the crimes of the Khmer Rouge during the 1970s. After walking back outside, you'll have a new appreciation and respect for modern Phnom Penh – a city intent on building a bright future. Other notable sites include the Silver Pagoda, which features a floor covered in gleaming silver (as the name suggests), and the National Museum of Cambodia, where you can see an impressive collection of traditional Khmer artwork and artifacts. If you wish to buy handmade silk goods, jewelry, and other goods, make your way to Russian Market – a buzzing bazaar. And when it comes time to eat, you could enjoy grub at one of the hotels in Phnom Penh, but street food and local hole-in-the-wall joints are particularly tasty, especially if you wish to enjoy authentic Khmer cuisine.

Festivals and Events

Victory over Genocide Day in January, the Cambodian Water Festival (Bon Om Touk) in November, and Ancestors' Day (Pchum Ben) in September/October are three of the more important celebrations throughout the year, and allow you to experience a true sense of Cambodian culture and history. If you wish to attend such events, look for Phnom Penh vacation packages to get you there.
