Finding hotels in Phnom Penh can be a daunting experience. Phnom Penh's exotic location on the Mekong, beautiful colonial architecture, ancient temples and palaces, and strong cultural identity make it one of the most enchanting capitals of the region, and offers a wealth of Phnom Penh hotels to choose from. Once called the Paris of the East, it has bounced back after the horrors it lived through under the Khmer Rouge. Arts, culture and architecture are in a phase of renaissance, and much of the damage is being carefully repaired piece by piece. Visitors today have the privilege of experiencing its many different facets - from its French colonial roots, to its killing fields and prisons of the '70s, to more modern cafes, galleries and Phnom Penh hotels which have opened recently.
Phnom Penh is one of Asia's hidden gems!
Setting foot in Phnom Penh is an experience like no other. Bustling, dusty, busy streets teeming with tuk-tuks and people juxtaposed with the relaxed elegance of French colonial buildings and tranquil riverfront cafes and parks - and ironically not much of what one may call traditionally 'touristy'. And yet, there's so much to see and do in Phnom Penh. Replete with history, both pleasant and dark, Khmer culture is unlike anything you may have experienced before. In Phnom Penh you will find genocide related sites as well as stunning palaces on your itinerary.
Beautiful pagodas, temples like the legendary Wat Phnom and the intricately decorated Wat Botum, the Royal Palace and the bustling Central Market are just a few of the sights that will have you spellbound. Other sights like the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum or notoreous killing fields of Choeung Ek will make you pause and reflect, and add a measure of poignancy to your visit. Be sure to take a Phnom Penh tour to explore these sites and make the most of your Phnom Penh holiday.
