When it comes to Indochina tours in Southeast Asia, no trip would be complete without stopping by Cambodia. But who doesn’t like Cambodia? This country is home to the famed temples of Angkor Wat, which has become a symbolic tourist destination for millions of travelers from around the world. It’s also a place where you’ll find some of the most inviting and charming people in this part of the continent. What’s more, it has a wide range of accommodation options that fit every budget.

It’s located 20 minutes away from Street 308, which is a groovy neighborhood teeming with bars, restaurants, and other local businesses.

During your stay at YK Art House, here are some of the must-see places you should check out in Phnom Penh.
- Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum – before it was used as an execution centre of an estimated 17,000 Cambodians during the Khmer Rouge regime, this museum was formerly a high school. If you’re someone who’s interested in history, this is the place to go. Here, you will find 6,000 portraits of prisoners who were tortured and killed. Check YK Art House for more details.
- Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda – both landmarks are located adjacent to each other. Both have breathtaking Khmer architecture that can’t be found anywhere else. Here, you can explore the palace grounds or go on a guided tour.
- Ta Prohm Temple at Tonle Bati – this 12th-century structure has stone carvings and bas reliefs of Hindu mythology. It looks a lot like the popular Angkor Wat. After you’re done exploring Ta Prohm, you can also check out Yey Peo Temple and Tonle Bati Lake, where you can have a picnic among the locals.
- The Killing Fields or Choeung Ek Memorial – it is the most bone-chilling evidence of the country’s tragic past. It’s the burial ground for the 17,000 estimated prisoners who were tortured and executed during the Khmer Rouge regime. You can also go on a guided tour around the memorial place.
