Take remok (Khmer tuk-tuk) around the city along the Tonle Sap river with a very nice view, accompany with historical playback.

Explore PHNOM PENH, a chaotic, energetic and always fascinating city. Graceful tree-lined boulevards and riverfront promenades are reminders of bygone eras; today they teem with life and activity, as motorcycles weave in and out of traffic, vendor hawk their wares, and pedestrians go about their business.

Visit the elegant NATIONAL MUSEUM, designed in the 1920s in the Khmer style by George Groslier, contains a vast collection of Khmer sculpture and art. Wander the halls to acquire an insight into an artistic heritage that stretches back centuries.

Continue to The ROYAL PALACE and SILVER PAGODA stands on the site of the former citadel, Bantey Kev (built in 1813). Visitors are not allowed to some portions of the grounds, as the palace is the official residence of King Norodom Sihamoni. The silver pagoda is often called the Pagoda of the Emerald Buddha or Wat Preah Kaeo after the statue housed there. The wooden temple was originally built by King Norodom in 1892 and inside its floor is comprised of more than 5000 silver blocks which together weigh nearly 6 tons.

Visit PSAH THMAY, the city's central market. A covered market distinguished by its central dome (built in 1937). It is filled with shops selling jewellery, fabrics and all kinds of souvenirs - making it a great place for browsing. (Central Market is currently underconstruction but can be visited as usual)
