Destination of the Week - Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh

Cambodia’s capital might still be a bit rough around the edges but this former ‘Paris of the East’ has plenty worth exploring. There are a number of French colonial buildings around the city and while many are in various states of decay, the Grand Post Office Building, Central Market and Raffles Le Royal still retain their splendor. For a taste of Asian architecture, visit the Royal Palace or the beautiful Wats in town. Rent a bike and explore the waterside or even take a cruise along the Mekong. Whether you’re en route to Angkor Wat, Bangkok, or simply want to spend some time in the capital, make sure to check out our top picks.
