The Cambodian capital has seen a steady increase in visitors over the past few years which has resulted in a renaissance of sorts across the city. Though not having the obvious draw of the majestic temples at Siem Reap, the city’s current inhabitants - many of whom moved here after the Khmer Rouge control ended in 1979 - are carving out something new and a vibrant, buzzing capital is evolving.

 The constantly evolving city is best enjoyed over a three-day period so that its hidden charms can be revealed. Our expert local Backyard Travel guides will be delighted to show you the insider elements of their home to discover the beauty of the Kingdom’s capital.
