The capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh is perhaps one of the biggest points of interest in the country. Full of enchanting buildings from a variety of different cultures, Phnom Penh boasts an array of attractions and monuments. One of these attractions is the magnificent Royal Palace. This structure, constructed in authentic Cambodian style, was built in the 19th century and is the residence of the king of Cambodia. It's golden gilding and Khmer decorations recall a storied past and the interiors offer a fascinating glimpse into the lives of Cambodia's royal family.

Another landmark worth visiting is the astonishing Russian market in the centre of the city. A treasure trove of traditional Cambodian gifts, fake-branded clothing and souvenirs, this enormous marketplace is made up of labyrinthine streets and alleys and is a feast for the eyes and ears, offering a myriad of smells, sights and sounds unique to the Cambodian capital. The national museum of Cambodia is also found in Phnom Penh and offers a comprehensive and detailed exploration of this turbulent and diverse country's history.

For a truly historic experience, there are few places in the world like the ancient Angkor Wat temple in northern Cambodia.
