Phnom Penh ©
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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and The Cambodian Country Club. Your inner history buff will appreciate Choeung Ek Genocidal Center and Phnom Da. Change things up with a short trip to Phnom Chisor Temple in Takeo (about 1h 35 min away). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Royal Palace, see the interesting displays at National Museum, tee off at Garden City Golf Club, and wander the streets of Bassac Lane.

To see other places to visit, photos, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Phnom Penh trip itinerary builder .

Tel Aviv, Israel to Phnom Penh is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Tel Aviv to Phnom Penh due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Tel Aviv in April, plan for much hotter days in Phnom Penh, with highs around 41°C, while nights are a bit warmer with lows around 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to take a bus to Sen Monorom.
