When travelling it is important to take the time to learn about the new countries you are visiting; language, culture, traditions and history. Phnom Penh is Cambodia’s biggest busy city but it is also where you will find a lot of its dark history. Give yourself at least one whole day to experience it.
The Killing Fields / Choeung Genocial Center
- This is one thing I would urge you to do in Cambodia. Learn about the Khmer Rouge regime that devastated the country and visit one of the heart-wrenching sites it took place.
S-21 Prison / Museum
- No words can explain the overwhelming emotion that comes from visiting these two sites.
- Mad Monkey Hostel
- A chain of hostels in Cambodia that has everything you need
- Phnom Penh is a transportation hub in Cambodia so you may end up coming back a couple of times. Make sure you can spend at least one whole day to visit the killing fields and S-21 prison.
