Angkor Wat tempel
Angkor Wat

A mixture of Asian exotica, the famous Cambodian hospitality awaits the visitors to the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia. Situated at the confluence of three great rivers the "four arms" of the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Bassac forming the "four arms" right in front of the Royal Palace Phnom Penh is the commercial, political and cultural hubs of the Kingdom and is home to over one million of the country's estimated 11.4 million people. It is also the gateway to an exotic land….the world heritage site, the largest religious complex in the world, the temples of Angkor in the west, the beaches of the southern coast and the ethnic minorities of the north-eastern provinces.

The city offers several cultural and historical attractions including the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum. There are also a wide variety of services including five star hotels and budget guest houses, fine international dining, sidewalk noodle shops, neighbourhood pubs international discos and more.

Phnom Penh, like other Asian-City tourist destinations, is in the midst of rapid change. Over the past few years the number of restaurants and hotels have grown considerably and in the last year there had been a huge increase in the number of visitors. There are now direct daily flights from several Asian cities and three overland border crossing have opened since 1998. Even travel within the country is easier with several airlines flying domestic routes, regular bus service to major cities like Sihanouk ville and Kampong Cham and road conditions throughout the country have been gradually improving. Cambodia is becoming easier to visit everyday.

Today just take a Cambodia flight maybe by Air Asia out of Bangkok Airport or Kuala Lumpur Airport or by Tiger Airways from Changi Airport in Singapore and have fun at Cambodia vacation. There are also other airlines such as Silk Air and Bangkok Airways but just forget them they are relatively very expensive . Example Air Asia charges for the Bangkok Phnom Penh flight Baht 1500,- Bangkok Airways pulls Baht 4500,- etc. got the message ? The Siem Reap flight means travel to Angkor.

Don't care about currency exchange because everyone will charge you in dollars anyway, the only time you come in contact with the Cambodian currency, the Riel, is when the people needs to give you some small cash back and they don't have this in dollars. Currently (2012) the dollars is equivalent to around 4 Riel.
