ITINERARY

Day 1: Phnom Penh – Arrival (Nil)
Welcome to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s vibrant and bustling capital city.

This excursion may prove distressing for some. It is, however, an important piece of this country’s historical and cultural puzzle. Continuously, visit Royal Palace is a royal residence now where His Majesty, the King of Cambodia, and the royal families live. It is like a small town of royal dynasties.
