Pictures never do Phnom Penh justice. The serpentine spires of its royal palace, the stoic French colonial architecture, and the candle-lit pagodas are all postcard favorites. The real Phnom Penh, however, appeals to all your senses. Relish in the river breeze, and lunch on steaming noodle soup. Sit at a cafe and watch the lively streets as chatty youths and saffron-robed monks pass by. As dusk approaches, surrender to luxury in a boutique hotel and relax to the vibe of the city. Backyard Travel’s tailored Phnom Penh tours delve deep into the electric pace of this capital city. Our local Phnom Penh travel agency has all the insider tips to make your time here affordable and unforgettable.

My husband and I cannot express how perfect our vacation was with Backyard Travel. This was our first trip to Asia and Joy, from Backyard travel, was able to create a 2-week itinerary around the experiences we are interested in. We traveled to Tokyo, Bangkok, Siem Reap, and Luang Prabang. We ate so much food and learned a lot about tradition and culture. The entire trip was so carefully planned that we had not one single issue. The tour guide would greet us at the airport and drop us back off. They knew English well and taught us so much about their country. We are still over the moon by everyone’s hospitality. We HIGHLY recommend Backyard travel for a perfect Asia experience!

We really love the service. From the beginning until the end, we were really happy with Mr.Samuel and our driver ( I?m sorry I forgot his name ). Both of them were nice to us, very helpful and friendly, and most importantly is they always smile. When we went for shopping, Mr.Samuel was with us all the time and never complained, made sour face or told us to hurry. He was good with the kids too. I definitely will recommend Backyard Travel to my friends. Thumbs up.

The trip to Cambodia was all I expected.
The guide was a wonderful person, we really enjoyed his guidance and company, all we learned from him about Cambodia history and it was wonderful he answered all our questions about the country and customs.
Cambodia is a wonderful country, the food is the fresher food I have ever taste. The places we visited were the ones I wanted to visit (from my own research), thus the agency tailor made the trip with all I wanted to visit.
Our hotel was also very confortable, and very well located (we visited the night market and the pub street almost every night), and of course we used the pool many times as heat was up to 45^C; the restaurant was very good. Even our driver was a very kind person.
I would also like to thank you for helping me to plan our trip.
The only think I might think about (but this is because i am a very active person) is to add more activities per day, because we had some dead timing between the trips and the planned night events, but I also enjoyed visiting the markets and stores in such time.
I would definitely travel again with Backyard travel.

Competent guides, high standards. A bit pricy, but if something goes wrong they really make an effort to fix it.

What’s Special about Phom Penh?

Because diversity and complexity are the norm, you’ll always learn something new about what makes this city and country tick. Backyard Travel’s tailored Phnom Penh tours offer a privileged glimpse into the culture, history, and character of not just the city, but of modern Cambodia as a whole.


Far less laid-back than rural Cambodians, the capital’s residents are more worldly but still sincere and unassuming. Stroll through the waterfront or the bustling bazaar for a taste of Phnom Penh’s energy.


Phnom Penh is a sultry tropical city almost all year round. Temperatures are a bit cooler in the winter; the rainy season lasts from June to October. Fortunately, riverfront breezes offer a cool break any time of year.


Phnom Penh offers bars, restaurants, and a few nightclubs, many housed in atmospheric colonial buildings. See a traditional dance, music, or puppet show at a local theater before dining on a terrace overlooking the Mekong.


Although French colonization’s deep roots are evident in Phnom Penh’s beaux-arts buildings, stylish squares, and cafe culture, it is a decidedly Khmer and Buddhist city. The scent of lemongrass and glow of prayer candles fill the boulevards.


Khmer is spoken by most of Phnom Penh’s residents. Displacement and migration have also made some minority languages common. Some speak French, and young residents and businesspeople are more likely to speak English.


Phnom Penh was Cambodia’s royal capital, then France’s colonial capital, then the Pearl of Asia at the dawn of the 20th century. More recent turmoil has tarnished that reputation, but the city is making a comeback.
