Phnom Penh, Cambodia

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, get engrossed in the history at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, see the interesting displays at National Museum, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read our Phnom Penh route planning tool.

Sydney, Australia to Phnom Penh is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Sydney to Phnom Penh due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Sydney in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Phnom Penh: temperatures range from 38°C by day to 29°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) so you can travel to Vientiane.

Vientiane ©
The riverside capital of Laos, Vientiane still has a relatively small urban area and a laid-back, relaxed feel to it.
Take a break from Vientiane with a short trip to Nam Ngum Dam in Thalat, about 1h 40 min away. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Great Sacred Stupa (Pha That Luang), look for gifts at Mai Savanh Lao, hunt for treasures at Morning Market, and appreciate the history behind Buddha Park.

For more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Vientiane driving holiday planner.
