Phnom Penh, Cambodia

— 6 nights

Charming City

On the confluence of two major rivers, Phnom Penh occupies a scenic location largely responsible for its nickname the "Charming City." On a trip to Phnom Penh you'll discover one of Asia's most dynamic cities, where the natives live much of their lives outdoors, on the streets, and in the bustling markets filled with scents of spicy foods.
Phnom Penh is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Choeung Ek Genocidal Center, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, take an in-depth tour of Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, and have fun at Cambodia Extreme Outdoor Shooting Range.

For maps, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read our Phnom Penh journey planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Phnom Penh is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Amsterdam to Phnom Penh due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Amsterdam in July: high temperatures in Phnom Penh hover around 39°C and lows are around 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Ho Chi Minh City.

Pearl of the Far East

Formerly known in the West as Saigon and affectionately referred to as the "Pearl of the Far East," Ho Chi Minh City is a study of old and new, woven and piled together in a fast-paced urban hub.
When in Ho Chi Minh City, make a side trip to see Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh, approximately Tay Ninh away. On the 18th (Sun), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, explore the activities along Bach Dang, and get a sense of history and politics at Central Post Office.

To find maps, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Ho Chi Minh City trip itinerary maker app.
