Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

The capital of Cambodia, this French colonial city is home to beautiful historic attractions that make for some pleasant walks. It was once called the “Paris of the East”, an apt description for a city that has one of the most stunning waterfronts in Asia.

Phnom Penh is a great place for market and bazaar shopping. Russian Market, in particular, sells a colourful range of bags, shawls and other items made from exquisite Cambodian silk and fabrics.
