Phnom Penh Sightseeing - Half Day

Today’s tour will begin at 08:00. Learn all about the history and culture of the capital on this guided, half day tour of Phnom Penh. Start with a visit to the Royal Palace, located in the centre of town. The palace was built in 1866 at the end of the French colonial era.
