Raffles Phnom Penh
One of the most famous names in hospitality, Raffles has been atop the local hotel scene for nigh on a century. Close to the Central and Russian markets, the gleaming marble and understated elegance welcome refined guests. The 101 peerless rooms mix details from the 1920s woth Art Deco, Khmer and French influences.
Cambodia’s largest city lies on the Mekong River. The city is growing rapidly, and modernisation continues apace. The main sights are the Royal Palace, the Independence Monument and the National Museum. You can see the country’s French heritage in everything from the architecture to the food, and you can wander the broad boulevards looking at the colonial houses.
