Discovering the capital of Cambodia - Phnom Penh which was once known as the "Pearl of Asia" with only 2 day trip arranged.

Exploring the scenic beauty of Phnom Penh, the capital and the largest city of Cambodia with Royal Palace (the Royal Residence, the Throne Hall, the Silver Pagoda, and other buildings), National Museum's Collection of Khmer with over 5,000 objects including statues and other artifacts from Angkor Wat....

Day1: Phnom Penh arrival (D)

Morning arrival at Phnom Penh Airport. Transfer to your hotel. The same afternoon, the Royal Palace. The Palace was opened in 1870 under King Norodom, and now contains the Royal Residence, the Throne Hall, the Silver Pagoda, and other buildings. The Silver Pagoda (Wat Preah Keo Morokat) is one of the city's most  visited sites and offers a display of priceless Buddhist and historical objects. The Pagoda draws its name with more than 5,000 silver tiles, which cover a floor in the temple. The building serves  less as a functioning shrine, no monks currently reside here, than a repository of cultural treasures such as the famous Emerald Buddha and many other valuable statues. Overnight at hotel in Phnom Penh.

Day2: Phnom Penh (B/L)

This morning explore the National Museum‟s collection of Khmer art, which displays over 5,000 objects including statues and other artifacts from Angkor Wat. Then we discover Phnom Penh‟s Psar Toul Tom Pong, known as the Russian Market, a great place to hunt for souvenirs, curios, and silks. After lunch at a local restaurant, we visit the Toul Sleng Prison Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek-both grim reminders of Cambodia's bloody past under Pol Pot. It is almost inconceivable to confront the nature of true evil here in this gentle land, but the Buddhist memorial at Choeung Ek, commemorates the 1.7 million victims of the 1975-79 Pol Pot regime. This excursion may prove distressing for some. It is, however, an important piece of this country‟s historical and cultural puzzle. Transfer to the airport for the flight departure.
