Full description
At 8:00 AM, start your tour of the charming capital with a visit to the city’s namesake, Wat Phnom. The pagoda was built to house Buddhist relics washed ashore by the river. After, you will visit the Royal Palace built in 1866 by King Norodom. See the different structures of this pagoda-style compound and stroll in its beautiful garden. Visit the Silver Pagoda named because of it’s floor that is comprised of 5,000 silver tiles. A gold Buddha encrusted with 9,584 diamonds and a small 17th century emerald and baccarat crystal Buddha are also housed here.

Continue to the nearby National Museum. Built in 1917, it is an exceptional example of traditional architecture and is exclusively devoted to preserving and displaying Khmer art and sculptures.

ha sido un acierto inmejorable el haber tomado esta excursión con este tour operador, se han preocupado de que pudiera realizar una visita con tiempo suficiente dentro de mi escaso margen en el día que tenía hoy tengo que mencionar el interés amabilidad sabiduría y conocimientos del guía Kim sin el cual la excursión no hubiera sido igual asimismo el conductor siempre pendiente de facilitarme las cosas con el equipaje con todo desde luego al margen de lo que es la visita y la excursión en sí que es una maravilla no se debe dejar de hacer es muy interesante muy completa pero no enciende honor al touroperador y al guía

Perfekter Trip zwischen wunderschönen Tempeln und den Killing Fields

Der Ausflug nimmt einen mit in die grausame Zeit des Pol Pot Regime um dann auch die schönen Seiten Phnom Penh’s zu entdecken. Während die Killingg Fields und das S21 Gefängnis nichts für schwache Nerven oder kleine Kinder sind, zeigt der Rest der Tour die schönen Seiten der Stadt auf. Preis-Leistung könnten besser sein, insbesondere wenn man das Preisniveau des Landes betrachtet. Unser Guide war sehr freundlich und sprach verhältnismäßig gut Englisch. Allerdings sollte man nicht den Standard vergleichbarer Angebote bspw. in Bangkok erwarten.

It was supposed to be 4 hours and the guide left us after 2.5 hours. He was somewhat informative but we felt like there was so much information he didn't give us. Very cursory.
