Phnom Penh

Bird view of Phnom Penh Central Market

The capital of Cambodia is re-emerging as the Pearl of Asia, as it was once known.

This energetic, vibrant and welcoming city is well worth spending a few days. There might not be that much major attractions, but it’s all made up for by the atmosphere and the people.
