Day 01: Phnom Penh Arrival
 
 
 
royal palace phnom penh
Welcome to Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia! Met and greeted by our guide at the airport and take a short transfer to hotel for check-in.
Enjoy some rest and this afternoon we will spend time to visit to the Royal Palace that contains the Royal Residence, the Throne Hall, the Silver Pagoda, and other buildings.
Built in the 1860s under the reign of King Norodom, this massive complex is the jade of Phnom Penh and bears a typical traditional Cambodian style.
Of those special architectures, the Silver Pagoda (Wat Preah Keo Morokat) is one of the city's most visited sites and has its name from more than 5,000 silver tiles, which cover a floor in the temple. The building serves less as a functioning shrine than a repository of cultural treasures such as the famous Emerald Buddha and many other valuable statues.
Free evening at your own pace to enjoy Phnom Penh by night.
Overnight in hotel in Phnom Penh.
Day 02: Phnom Penh Departure (B/L)
 
 
 
monks in phnom penh
Breakfast at the hotel and this morning we will start with a visit to the National Museum of Khmer art, which displays over 5,000 objects including statues and other artifacts from Angkor Wat.
Continue to Phnom Penh’s Psar Toul Tom Pong, also known as the Russian Market, a beautiful place where we can spend our time to wander around for sightseeing and indulge yourself with some fantastic shopping of souvenirs, curiosa, and silks.
After lunch at a local restaurant, this afternoon we will visit the Toul Sleng Prison Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek – the two places that remind the the sorrowful past of Cambodia under the rule of Pol Pot regime - Khmer Rouge from 1975 to 1979. It is almost inconceivable to confront the nature of true evil here in this gentle land and this excursion may prove distressing for some but it is important visit that will allow you to dig below the surface and understand better this country’s historical and cultural puzzle.
Transfer to the airport for the flight to onward destination. Safe travel!
