The capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, is located at the confluence of four rivers-the Lower Mekong, the Upper Mekong, the Bassac and Tonle Sap. The city is divided into three sections-the north, an attractive residential area; the south or the French part of the city with its ministries, banks and colonial houses; and the center or the heart with its narrow lanes, markets, foods stalls and shops.
Over the past four years, the city has undergone tremendous changes businesses are springing up constantly and tourism is once again booming. Cambodia had managed to retain its charm and character; cyclos that weave through traffic with ease, broad boulevards, old colonial buildings, parks and green spaces that remind one of the country’s French heritage, and above all, its people who always have smile for you.
Cambodia can be enjoyed any time of the year, though the ideal season is between November and February. During this time of the year, the humidity levels are relatively low and there is little likelihood of rain.
