Description

Discover the historical wonders of Cambodia's capital on this half-day tour. Marvel at the majestic Royal Palace, explore the beautiful Silver Pagoda, and visit the historic Independence Monument with your knowledgeable guide.

Start your day with a comfortable hotel pickup and head to the Royal Palace, the official residence of the King of Cambodia. Marvel at the intricate Khmer architectural designs featuring a defense wall, throne building, stupas, and towering spires. See the Throne Hall, where the King's coronation took place, and pass by the Napoleon III Pavilion, a gift from the French emperor in the 19th century.

Then, admire the Silver Pagoda which houses many national treasures including golden and bejeweled Buddha statues. See the life-sized Maitreya Buddha coated with more than 9,500 diamonds as well as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and its pristine gardens.

Your final stop is the historic Independence Monument, built in 1958 to commemorate Cambodia's independence from France. Notice the distinctive lotus-shaped stupa, a style similar to Angkor Wat, and don't miss the chance to take memorable photos of this iconic site before returning to your hotel.

This tour company is to be avoided. We booked two tours with them. Both were poor. As regards this tour, the tour time was firstly changed unilaterally from the afternoon to the morning a couple of days before and then on the actual day we were told that the tour couldn't take place as the palace was closed in the morning! We were then taken instead to the Killing Fields. That was a heart wrenching site. The guide however added little value as his English was very poor and his background knowledge of the site no deeper than the signs or available audio guide.
