Phnom Penh

Mapper » Asia » Southeast Asia » Cambodia » Phnom Penh

 

Phnom Penh is located at the confluence of the Mekong and the Tonle Sap rivers in south-central Cambodia.

It is the capital and largest city of the country.  Despite this, it retains a traditional flavor and is a good a place to relax, watch the street-life, and absorb the local color.

The park-like riverfront, which hosts many cafés and restaurants, makes for some of the most pleasant strolling.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural
A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.

Unusual Local Feature

Memorials to the Killing Fields

The Killing Fields are a number of sites in Cambodia where collectively more than a million people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime, during its extraordinary violent rule of the country from 1975 to 1979.

Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S-21 Prison). A good place to start to learn of the history and background of the killing fields is this museum. It is school converted into Cambodia's most important prison in 1975. More than 14,000 people were tortured here before being killed here or at the Killing Fields; only 8 prisoners survived.

The Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. About 17 km south of Phnom Penh, this former Chinese cemetery is where the Khmer Rouge killed many thousands of their victims during their four-year reign of terror. Today the site is marked by a Buddhist stupa packed full with over 8,000 human skulls - the sides are made of glass so the visitors can see them up close. There are also pits in the area where mass graves were unearthed, with ominous scraps of clothing still to be found here and there. It is a serene yet somber place.
Palaces and Chateaux

The Royal Palace

This is one of the most spectacular palaces in Asia. It includes the two magnificent pagodas in the Palace Grounds -- the Silver Pagoda and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. They were built in the 19th century with French technology and Cambodian designs, and have survived the traumas of the 20th century surprisingly well intact. See early in the day before it gets too hot.
