On the confluence of two major rivers, Phnom Penh occupies a scenic location largely responsible for its nickname the "Charming City." On a trip to Phnom Penh you'll discover one of Asia's most dynamic cities, where the natives live much of their lives outdoors, on the streets, and in the bustling markets filled with scents of spicy foods.
Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Mekong River will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Wat Ounalom and Udong Mountain. Step out of Phnom Penh to go to Kampong Cham and see Koh Paen Island, which is approximately 2 hours away. The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Royal Palace, enjoy some diversion at Cambodia Shooting Range Outdoor Phnom Penh, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wat Phnom, and appreciate the history behind Independence Monument.
