Day 1: Arrive in Phnom Penh
You will be greeted by your private driver once you have cleared customs and collected your luggage.
You will be taken to your hotel, where you will check in for your 3 night stay in Phnom Penh.
Day 2: Phnom Penh Tour
This morning you will gain vital knowledge about Cambodia’s recent history during a visit to the remarkable Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, which is housed in the former school that was taken over by the Khmer Rouge, and used as a detention and torture centre named S-21. This will be followed by a trip to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek which are located a short drive away.
Today will be educational and also deeply moving – it is very important to learn about the experiences the Cambodian people went through, as this will allow you to understand Cambodia better, and also appreciate how the country and its people are moving on from their dark history.
After a challenging and eye-opening morning, your afternoon is free for you to explore independently. We loved browsing the colourful Central market, one of the largest markets in Phnom Penh. Here you will get to witness Phnom Penh’s culture and traditions through jewellery, food, textiles, and handicrafts.
Day 3: Phnom Penh
We have left today free for you to explore Phnom Penh at your own pace.
A few highlights we really enjoyed include visiting the Russian Market, where you will find the widest (and best!) selection of wood and stone carvings, or perhaps heading to the Silver Pagoda (named after it’s shining silver floor) and the National Museum of Cambodia.
Day 4: Depart Phnom Penh
Your time in Phnom Penh is drawing to a close, so your driver will collect you from your hotel and take you to meet your onward flight. How about taking a look at our Siem Reap stop-over package, or maybe you are interested in heading to a new country – we have a fantastic selection of tailor-made Vietnam itineraries to whet your appetite!
