Private Phnom Penh City Tour
After meeting our tour guide, we will learn about the dark side of Cambodia – Its more recent turbulent and harrowing history. Initially, you visit the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum (also known as S21), ironically a former school, located in a quiet Phnom Penh suburb, this was the infamous Khmer Rouge prison/torture Centre.
Once you have gained an initial insight into the brutality of the Khmer Rouge regime, you will be driven 15km from Phnom Penh to visit the 'Killing Fields'. This is where Toul Sleng prisoners were forcibly marched and then executed; it is now a memorial site located in a beautiful tranquil setting.
Visit the Royal Palace compound build in 1866 by the Predecessors of King Norodom, is the most conspicuous feature and also one of the impressive colourful Khmer-style Palaces. Nearside, the Royal Palace, is Silver Pagoda (The Emerald Buddha temple), display plenty of Buddha Statues that were decorated and made of diamond, emerald, gold and silver.
We continue to Wat Phnom, a Buddhist temple located in centre of Phnom Penh city. It was built in 1373 and stands 27 meters above the ground.
We will stop at Central Market located in the heart of the Phnom Penh. The Khmer name of the market is Phsar Thmei, which translates to “new market”. The Central Market was built in 1937 during the French colonial period, in Art Deco style, and is painted bright ochre.
