Phnom Penh, Cambodia

A Royal Palace, a famous Temple, and a great night market are just some of the gems hidden in this city.

Visit the Silver Pagoda for a lovely photo of something so beautiful or museums showing the darker side of humanity.

It also has a strange presence about it mainly I suspect due to the fact that during the Khmer Rouge period the whole city was emptied of people as they were forced to go back to the rural areas to help grow rice.

4 years of abandonment

It almost seems a city that has a separation from the people that live there, but then it was virtually empty between 1975 and 1979.

Very hard to explain but definitely a different vibe about it from other capital cities in Asia.

It may not have the backpacking tourist vibe of Siem Reap but it still has much to offer if you know where to look
