Day 2PHNOM PENH SIGHTSEEING Day 2 - PHNOM PENH SIGHTSEEING
Exotic flavours are yours to explore this morning on an in-depth City Tour with a Local Specialist which begins with a visit to Wat Phnom temple from which the city takes its name. Delve into the legend of Lady Penh who discovered the four statues of Buddha deposited on this tree-covered hill. The golden spires of the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda with its bountiful national treasures are our next stop on this exploration of Cambodia's capital, which includes a visit to the National Museum, where we gain a unique insight into Khmer art and sculptures from different periods throughout Khmer history. Delving deep into the turbulent, terrifying history of the Khmer Rouge years, we travel along a dusty road to the outskirts of the city to visit the former school turned torture, interrogation and execution centre of Tuol Sleng. The history of that time is depicted in the thousands of S-21 portraits of victims that are on display at the Museum of Genocide, providing an insight into the horrors of Cambodia under Pol Pot's rule. Our journey back in time continues on to the Cheung Ek Killing Fields, a memorial built to commemorate the 17,000 victims who died under the reign of the Khmer Rouge. Spend the evening at leisure.
