Royal Palace
When you come to Phnom Penh, the most not to be missed is the Royal Palace. The Royal Palace of Phnom Penh is located in Cambodia, just like the Forbidden City in China. It was built by King Norodom from 1866 to 1870. It is located in the east of Phnom Penh and faces the Four Arms Bay formed by the Mekong River, the Tonle River and the Basha River. It is a symbol of the rights of the Kingdom of Cambodia.  The Palace of Phnom Penh is composed of a group of golden roofs and yellow walls. It is exquisitely shaped and magnificent, including more than 20 large and small palaces such as Chaya Hall, Golden Temple, Silver Temple, Dance Hall and Treasure Hall. The palace has spires, which represent prosperity. The temple is dominated by yellow and white. Yellow represents Buddhism and white represents Brahmanism.  On the cloister of the building is a magnificent relief mural depicting the Angkor Temple and the achievements and religious stories of the dynasties. However, because there is a royal residence in the north part, visitors cannot visit it. The silver temple in the south is available for visits. Although the city does not speak, the building reflects the history of the city with bricks and tiles.

Royal Palace
The Royal Palace is the most popular attraction to visit in Phnom Penh. It embodies the essence of the architecture and art of the Khmer dynasty. The entire building is composed of yellow and white structures, yellow for Buddhism and white for Brahmanism. Part of the palace is open to the general public, and the part where the royal family lives, cannot be visited. There is a large lawn and plaza outside the palace. The flocks of white pigeons fly around and gives you a peaceful view. Ticket price: 6.5 US dollars approx., opening hours are: 8:00-11:30 and 14:00-17:00 during the day, address: between 184th Street and 240th Street on the Solo Prince Avenue in the Tonle Sap River in Phnom Penh City.  Note: It seems that the prices have increased from January 2017, and the specific ticket price is not clear. Entering the palace requires a full clothing like long sleeved tops, long skirt and pants that go below the knees. The camera cannot be taken inside the palace and taking photographs is prohibited.

Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
The weather in Phnom Penh is tropical and is very hot and humid due to the high pressure of the Gulf of Thailand and the Indian Ocean. Walking on the big streets, you will feel so hot and uncomfortable, while Phnom Penh has a very hot summer, even in the normal days it will make you shudder with the heat. Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia. But when the night arrives in the capital city, it gives people a feeling of darkness and quietness. Many shops get closed around 7 or 8 o'clock in the city. The sidewalks are always full of motorcycles and occupies most of the place on the streets. The streets are also full of gravel and dust. If you don't see two tall buildings, you can only visually think that this is equivalent to the domestic second and third line, and it is similar to Hue in Vietnam. Phnom Penh, the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia, was called the “Paris of the East” 50 years ago. After nearly half a century of war, it has lost its former charm, and it now seems to be broken and barren.

Central Market
The Central Market, which we came to, is the most prosperous place in the night. The market is built around the ring. Apart from the general shops, the most characteristic ones are various roadside stalls. If you want to buy local specialties and agricultural products in the local mountains, this is a good choice. We tried food from the roadside booths during the day and the night, but we had a stomach-ache the next day, so everyone needs to choose wisely and carefully.

Royal Palace
Buddhist temple Wat Phnom located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia is also the highest point in Phnom Penh. It is the tallest religious structure in the whole city. It is related to the origin of the name Phnom Penh. More than 600 years ago, a woman named "Bian" saw a big tree floating on the river. After pulling ashore, she found four bronze Buddha statues and a stone statue in the tree hole. She felt that this was a god-given gift. She added a mountain slope near her home and built a temple on it for worship. Under the blessing of the gods, the city developed here, and people named the city "Phnom Penh" according to the name of the temple and the woman. Then developed the Grand Palace of Cambodia, which is full of classical architecture, a golden yellow colored structure. It is also the place where the king of Cambodia lived when he was in the country, and met with major foreign leaders. I heard that the king was single. He stayed in China for a long time when he was young. He knew a woman, but his parents did not agree for this engagement. The two sides agreed that they won't get married. It is a really touching story.
