Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is known as the capital and largest city of Cambodia.  It is located at the convergence of Mekong, Bassac and Tonle Sap rivers in the central plain.  All three rivers serve as essential resources for the people in the area.  The city was founded in 1434, and was supposed to replace Angkor Thom as the capital.  However Lovek was chosen instead.  Phnom Penh was re-established in 1865.  At present, the city serves as the political, cultural and commercial centre of the country.  A population of over one million Cambodians call Phnom Penh home.

Like any other tourist destination, Phnom Penh has undergone a lot of changes and still continues to develop.  Tourist numbers visiting the capital are increasing as the number of hotels and restaurants rise. 

Travel within the country is a lot easier thanks to better roads, expanded bus services and the addition of domestic airline routes.  In 1998, overland border crossings were facilitated and there are now daily direct flights from some Asian cities.  But some things have remained the same: Attractions such as the National Museum, Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda are still as alluring.
