Temple Town

Here are some ideas for day two: explore the ancient world of Preah Khan, then steep yourself in history at Angkor Thom, then delve into the distant past at Bayon Temple, and finally relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

Phnom Penh — 1 night

Charming City

On the confluence of two major rivers, Phnom Penh occupies a scenic location largely responsible for its nickname the "Charming City." On a trip to Phnom Penh you'll discover one of Asia's most dynamic cities, where the natives live much of their lives outdoors, on the streets, and in the bustling markets filled with scents of spicy foods.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Sat): revel in the low prices at Zando City Mall, steep yourself in history at Choeung Ek Genocidal Center, look for gifts at A.N.D, then explore the historical opulence of Royal Palace, and finally browse the eclectic array of goods at Central Market. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: examine the collection at National Museum, then get engrossed in the history at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, and then appreciate the history behind Independence Monument.

Cambodia travel guide

Ruins · Historic Sites · Spas
For over six centuries, the mighty Khmer Empire flourished in Cambodia, a scenic land of majestic temples, pristine waterfalls, and dense jungles. A protectorate of France between 1863 and 1953, the country suffered under the Khmer Rouge, a ruling party remembered mostly for its part in organizing the bloody Cambodian genocide of the 1970s. Today, a trip to Cambodia will reveal the region's troubled history, but also some of Southeast Asia's most significant archaeological sites. Few tourist attractions in Cambodia match the splendor of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage-listed temple complex that represents the biggest religious monument on the planet.
