Day 02~Sightseeing of Phnom Penh

After breakfast, your guide and driver will take you for sightseeing of Phnom Penh-the capital city of Cambodia.

First we visit the architecture and cultural areas of Phnom Pehn Art and Culture of Phnom Penh. We begin from the Royal Palace, built in 1866 by King Norodom. Appreciate the different structures of this pagoda-style compound and stroll in its beautiful garden. Visit the Silver Pagoda, so named owing to the 5,000 silver tiles lining its floor. Other treasures include a gold Buddha encrusted with 9,584 diamonds and a small 17th century emerald and baccarat crystal Buddha. 

Afterwards, visit the Champey Academy of Arts (CAA), a local non-profit school focused on training in the traditional Cambodian arts. The school supports students from impoverished and vulnerable conditions and is totally free. Its mission is to promote self-empowerment and preserve traditional Cambodian arts and culture. 

Continue to the nearby National Museum. Built in 1917, it is an exceptional example of traditional architecture and is exclusively devoted to preserving and exhibiting Khmer art and sculptures. Hundreds of pieces are housed here including both pre-and post-Angkorian pieces.

Afternoon, we are off to the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Museum.

Just outside Phnom Penh, in a peaceful rural setting, the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek provide a stark reminder of the atrocities under the Pol Pot regime. Thousands of people were killed here between the years of 1975 and 1978 and buried in mass graves. Visit Tuol Sleng (S-21). Learn about a chapter from Cambodia's more recent, tragic, past at the Tuol Sleng Museum (Museum of Genocide). Formerly the Tuol Svay Prey High School, in 1975, this became the interrogation and torture facility for the Khmer Rouge regime - at that time known as Security Prison 21, or simply S-21. Kept largely unchanged, this prison now showcases photographs and exhibits about the thousands of victims that passed through these doors - only seven of whom came out alive.
