- 1Phnom PenhStop: 7 hoursYour tour will start with a visit to The Royal Palace, which is the grand residence of Cambodia’s much loved King and was built by the French in 1866. The main building on the compound is the Throne Room, built in 1917 in the traditional Khmer style it has a tiered roof and a 59‐meter tower, which is influenced by Angkor Thom’s Bayon Temple. Also on the compounds of the Royal Palace, is the stunning Silver Pagoda, the floor inside it is comprised of more than 5000 silver tiles, which together weigh nearly 6 tons. The pagoda houses a magnificent 17th century Emerald Buddha statue and a 90 kg gold Buddha studded with 9584 diamonds. Next door to the palace is your next stop, the National Museum of Phnom Penh, which was designed by French historian George Groslier in traditional Khmer style. A landmark and masterpiece in the capital, the museum houses some of the most valuable Khmer Art and is home to a permanent display of Post- Angkorian Buddha statues. Original statues from Angkor also live at the National Museum, which have been replaced by replicas at Angkor itself. Visit of the day will be to the city’s most important temple, Wat Phnom. Located on a man‐made hill, 27m high, Wat Phnom is named after the wealthy widow who built a small pagoda here after finding four Buddha statues floating in the river. Learn about the legend behind this temple as you enjoy the views. We will stop at Central Market is located in the heart of the Phnom Penh. The Khmer name of the market is Phsar Thmei which translates to “new market”. The Central Market was built in 1937 during the French colonial period, in Art Deco style, and is painted bright ochre. It consists of four wings dominated by a central dome, the design allows maximum ventilation. It is probably the cleanest and most airy market in Phnom Penh. The Market was recently renovated to restore its old glory. The renovation was financed by the French government and finished in March of 2011. Cambodia’s harrowing history under the brutal Khmer Rouge routine, whilst deeply upsetting, is something that should not be ignored. For those who can handle it, we offer a visit to the S‐21 (Tuol Sleng) prison camp for an in-depth account of the atrocities that occurred.Read more
