Phnom Penh the Charming City

Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia however it feel like a small town without many tall building and rush life there. When we reach Phnom Penh in the morning, taxi transfer from airport to guesthouse (USD9), arranged by the guesthouse (Velkommen guesthouse).

We had our 1st day trip as a package offered by the guesthouse. USD15 to visit S21Killing Field/ Russion market/ Old market and bring us for food along the way. The 2nd days we went to museum, central market, night market (weekend only) and other attractions by walking.

Royal Palace

National Museum
Entrance fee: USD 3
Very beautiful building and this is also art museum to display many fine examples of Angkor Wat statuary.

Here we found a book store, it just looks like a small library, I like the environment very much :)

The traffic is chaos and prepare a mask when you going any where no matter by tuk tuk or walking, very dusty.

Center Market
The most famous market in Phnom Penh. Very big and sell various types of things but i prefer to other markets such as old orussey and russion market, very local feel and the price is cheaper also.

Phnom Penh is a peaceful and relaxing place. We very enjoyed the journey here! Everytime we ask for the direction on the street, people are helpful and even they don't know English, they try to ask someone to help us, very grateful!

Overall Experience: 4/5
