Cambodia’s Capital Past & Present

Phnom Penh was named “the Pearl of Asia” back in the 1960s and was one of the most developed cities at the time. Modern-day Phnom Penh is a world away from times gone by as a dynamic, busy city which is expanding and changing rapidly.

No one of a certain age should visit this fascinating country without going back in time to understand the country’s recent turbulent past of the Khmer Rouge and civil war years. The best way to understand this is to visit both the Toul Sleng (S-21) Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. You can then see how far the wonderful Cambodian people have come over such a short period of time and how welcoming they are to visitors.

Not only this, but if you want a glimpse of time gone by then the best way to see the city is on a traditional cyclo tour or a relaxing Mekong boat cruise.

City Cyclo Tour

This is a Phnom Penh tour with a difference – a cyclo tour of the city. A popular form of transport throughout Southeast Asia, the cyclo is still widely used in the Cambodian capital and is a fantastic way to see the sightsas part of your Cambodia holiday package. You start at Wat Phnom (symbol of the city) before heading west past the National Library and Hotel Le Royal. Then to Psar Thmei (Central Market) before snaking through the smaller back streets, such as 178 St which is brimming with art shops and boutiques. The final straight takes you past the Independence Monument and along the riverfront, passing the glittering Royal Palace and the stunning National Museum.

Travel Tip: We can arrange city tours lasting from 2 to 4 hours starting from your hotel. For the longer tours it is possible to stop off at various sites around the city while your cyclo waits.

Toul Sleng (S-21) & Killing Fields History Tours

This tour is the most probably the most important and reflective that we offer. We feel it is extremely important for visitors to understand the country’s recent dark history as it gives you a greater understanding of how far Cambodia has come and be humbled by how wonderful and warming the Cambodian people really are.
We are able to combine these two locations into a full-day tour, or split them in to two separate days of sightseeing.

Travel Tip: Visiting these sites might not be for everyone; however, we do encourage you to do so as it is important to see how far Cambodia has come since the Khmer Rouge days.

Evening boat trips start at 17:30 arriving back to port at 20:00
