Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh

Situated at the crossroads of three great rivers - the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Bassac, Phnom Penh is the heart of a country steeped in tradition, overflowing with rice paddies, jungles and still untouched rural communities. Once a sleepy backwater, Phnom Penh is buzzing today with commercial activity, as the country develops after years of isolation. It is dotted with monumental landmarks in a surreally beautiful environment. Old French colonial mansions stand alongside newly emerging designs, which make the city’s mixed architecture and communities fascinating sites to explore.
