From Siem Reap we travelled to Phnom Penh, the largest city and capital of Cambodia. The hopped on a bus and enjoyed the scenic ride all the way to Phnom Penh as travelling by bus is the perfect way to blend in with the locals and enjoy the rural scenery.
The bus was spacious, clean and even had air conditioning so we were really happy with that! Upon arrival in Phnom Penh we headed to the Narin 2 Guesthouse where we would be staying for the next couple of days.
We had found out about the guesthouse in the Cambodia Lonely Planet so it was a quick find:)
We did a lot of sightseeing by foot and tuk tuk with some help from the staff at the Narin 2 and one of my favourite places was the Royal Palace of Phnom Penh.
This palace with its golden stupa's and impressive throne hall is a real eyecather and can't be missed on your tour around the city. As for shopping, the best place to purchase souvenirs and other typical cambodian items is the Phnom Penh Central Market where they sell everything from clothing to fresh produce.
Did you enjoy Sightseeing in Phnom Penh and have you been on a holiday in Phnom Penh, Cambodia?
