Part of my Vietnam-Cambodia adventure with friends in 2014 was an overnight stay at Phnom Penh. We came via bus from Ho Chi Minh city, and the trip took about 9 hours. We got to Phnom Penh mid-afternoon and almost didn’t make it to the Royal Palace. Thankfully though, we did!
The Royal Palace served as the king of Cambodia’s residence since 1860. While only half of the compound is open to the public, the accessible attractions are still a sight to behold.
