ITINERARY BY DAY

Today explore the fascinating capital city of Phnom Penh. Sitting on the banks of the Ton Le Sap and Mekong Rivers, Phnom Penh is a city rich in history, heritage of exotic post-colonial culture. Largely constructed in the 1920s and boasting some of Asia's best preserved Art Deco architecture, the 'Pearl of Asia' is the perfect place to learn more about Cambodia both old and new. Start the day with a tuk tuk ride to the magnificent Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda complex. Explore the elaborately constructed palace buildings and get a closer look at the gold and bejeweled collection of Buddha statues, coupled with the 5000 silver floor tiles that give the pagoda its name. Walk on to the nearby National Museum before enjoying lunch at Friends International Restaurant. As an important NGO supporting marginalised young people in Cambodia for 20 years, Friend International boasts a menu of Cambodian classics with a twist.

In the afternoon, embark on a guided walking tour through the busy streets of central Phnom Penh. Start from the waterfront and explore some of the city's best-preserved colonial architecture, from the city Post Office to the National Library and the Raffles building. Finish at the magnificent Phsar Thmey central market, an Art Deco masterpiece that dominates the old city. Follow your guide through the warren of stalls and learn more about the everyday life of modern Cambodians. Finish the day with a tuk tuk ride back to your hotel.
