Phnom Penh is the cultural, commercial and political centre of the country

DESCRIPTION

In the morning, we travel from the Royal Palace across the Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge or Chroy Changvar Bridge and along the Tonle Sap River toward Wat Sampov Treyleak, which was constructed in 1966. At this location we have the perfect scenic view of the Royal Palace from across the river.  Soon after, we travel to Koh Dach, which is about 15km north of Phnom Penh on the Mekong River.  Here, visitors can buy the original high-quality Khmer silk, and we will also have lunch.  After that, our tour travels back to Phnom Penh in order to visit the Olympic Stadium, which was designed by architect Vann Molyvann and built in 1964. When we finish visiting the Olympic Stadium, we will go shopping near the National Museum.  Here, one can buy many types of products made by Cambodian people, such as:  silk handcrafts, pictures, sculptures, and more.  We will have dinner at the riverside of Phnom Penh, which contains the best selection of restaurants offering Khmer or foreign dishes.  On the second day, the tour travels to take a look at the Yeay Duan Penh statue near Wat Phnom. Yeay Duan Penh was an old lady who lived at Chaktomuk and founded Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. Next, we travel to Tuol Sleng to see the pictures of how Pol Pot tortured the Cambodian people.  It’s a very sad place, but a must-see that hammers home the horror that was the Khmer Rouge.  When we finish visiting the Toul Sleng Museum, our tour leaves for a local lunch near the Russian Market.  Then, our tour continues to the Wat Langka pagoda, where we can see various pictures and rare plants and flowers, especially the Rang Phnom tree (Cannonball tree).  Cambodian people believe that the Cannonball tree’s flowers are a helpful tonic for a pregnant woman when she boils the petals for drinking.  Our next stop is the Samdach Chuon Nath statue.  Samdach Chuon Nath was a master of Khmer Literature.  He was born on March 11, 1883 and died on September 25, 1969. Nath also contributed to the conservation of the Cambodian language in the form of Cambodian dictionaries. Then, we will walking across the street to look at the Krom Nguy statue in Hun Sen Park.  Krom Nguy was the father of Khmer Poetry in Cambodia, and his legacy remains with the Khmer Nation forever.   Soon after, we will end our tour by cruising along the Mekong river by boat and watching the sunset.
