Visiting Phnom Penh
Conquered by the Khymer Rouge in 1975, Phnom Penh is steadily gaining traction on adventurous tongues, as it pushes for re-emergence and magnetises thousands of travellers every year.
- The Killing Fields
- Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue
If you love contradictions and the charming oddities of a truly changing landscape, Cambodia is for you. Temples, palaces, histories (told and untold) and momentous remnants of atrocities frame the city of Phnom Penh. Indeed, if you’re seduced by the grittiness of the city or the images in the guidebook, the first stop of many must be the Killing Fields (Choeung Ek). Once the site of ripe orchards, almost nine thousand bodies out of the million executed during the regimes rule were found in mass graves; today, a Buddhist stupa acknowledges the sacrifices those people made.
Zoos are thick and manifold in Asia, with animals rides and photographs continuing to be a big tourist draw card; Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue is dedicated to conservation and education, allowing punters to get up close (feed an elephant!) without the need to ride or chain these noble creatures to posts.
