Phnom Penh is the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia, which is located at the confluence of three rivers – the Mekong, the Bassac and Tonle Sap. The city divided into three sections – the north, an attractive residential area; the south or the French part of the city with its ministries, banks and colonial houses; and the centre or the heart with its narrow lanes, markets, foods stalls and shops, has undergone tremendous changes in last few years.
The city has broad boulevards, old colonial buildings, parks and green spaces that reminds one of the country’s French heritage. The royal palace and pagodas are worth exploring. The emrald Buddha made of solid gold, sitting on a pedestal dias is not to be missed.
