Explore Phnom Penh’s Museums
Phnom Penh is a city that still displays the marks of its past and doesn’t hide from both the best and worst moments of its history. While the dark times of the 20th century are commemorated in the moving museums of Choeung Ek Memorial and the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, there are other chapters from Cambodia’s story to discover.
The National Museum of Cambodia is one of the heritage highlights of the city. Wander around galleries that display centuries of Khmer artwork and artefacts from as early as the fourth century. Ride a boat along the river to reach Silk Island, where you can see silk weavers crafting elegant textiles on hand-operated looms.
Dance the Night Away in Phnom Penh
After getting your fix of culture during the day, spend the evening experiencing the Phnom Penh’s increasingly famous nightlife. The areas around Independence Monument and the riverside both have clubs and bars to keep you dancing and drinking into the small hours.
Sip on cocktails at the top of skyscrapers or dance in old French colonial buildings by the Tonle Sap River. Wander along Street 308 to discover a wide variety of bars and restaurants all lined up next to one another, before heading out to the dance floors near Sisowath Quay then sleeping it off in your three-star hotel.
