What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Phnom Penh City Tour including the Silver Pagoda
Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, was a bustling commercial hub during French colonial days and today has re-established itself as the political and financial center of the country. Its rich historical past can be traced to the Khmer and French influence evident in the ornate Khmer-style temples and the grand colonial buildings and villas. The most obvious examples of this include the National Museum and the Silver Pagoda which you will visit in the first part of this tour. After a tasty lunch, take a sobering look at Cambodia's disturbing past with a visit to the Tuol Sleng Museum, a testament to Cambodia's recent bloody past under the Khmer Rouge regime.
