Phnom Penh is the largest, most populous and capital city of Cambodia. It is also the capital of the Phnom Penh municipality.
Once known as the “Pearl of Asia” in the 1920s, Phnom Penh, along with Siem Reap, is a significant global and domestic tourist destination for Cambodia. Phnom Penh is known for its traditional Khmer and French influenced architecture. The crumbling, colonial architecture & wide boulevard-style roads, give the city a relaxed French feel.
Phnom Penh is the wealthiest and the only major city on the banks of the Mekong. It is also the commercial, political and cultural hub of Cambodia and is home to more than one million of Cambodia’s population of over 13 million.
