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.
