Visitors and locals alike slurp steaming fish curries sitting on plastic chairs, and the smell of fried crab fills the air. The nearby National Museum of Cambodia is full of beautiful ancient artworks and striking statues.

Sightseeing near Phnom Penh City Centre

- National Museum of Cambodia


Whether or not you make it to Angkor Wat, this impressive museum in the riverside district offers an excellent look at the art, design, and imperialism of Cambodia’s ancient Khmer civilisation. The golden age of Angkor is on full display here in the form of statues, inscribed panels, and other pieces of stunning stonework. It won’t take long to see the entire museum, so plan to incorporate it into an outing with the Royal Palace.


- Royal Palace


The Royal Palace (1860s) is the city's defining feature, and for good reason. It's sequestered away behind fortifications, but inside is a truly grand complex. As expected, portions of the royal residence are off limits, but the adjoining Silver Pagoda is a site to behold. Inside are thousands of silver tiles and an impressive solid-gold Buddha adorned with more than 2,000 diamonds.


Transportation near Phnom Penh City Centre

With no public transportation to speak of, the best way to get around Phnom Penh is by motorised rickshaw. There are also regular taxis if you prefer, and once you reach any district in the capital, it’s worthwhile walking around to get a sense of the street life. One thing you won’t need in Phnom Penh is a car. Traffic is notoriously congested and the driving here is a challenge for even the most skilled drivers.
