Excellent personalised informational tour
We had an excellent experience, both our tour guide and our driver were extremely helpful and friendly. Our tour guide provided us with a very personal tour, carefully explaining the importance of the sites we were attending and the history we were witnessing. When the Royal Palace was unavailable due to COVID, he arranged for a sunset tour down the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers, which was a wonderful end to our day. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a personalised experience.

Shopping for Bargains at the Russian Market

As factories for big-name Western brands such as Levi’s, Calvin Klein, and Ralph Lauren are located in Phnom Penh, the stock that’s deemed unfit to be shipped abroad due to some flaw is then sold at the Russian Market. Stick to the eastern side of the market for clothing; the northern side sells a utilitarian mix of tools and household goods, while the other two sides are a mixture of jewelry and watches, antiques and not-so-antiques, pirated videos, and various crafts.
