If you're not on a budget staying at the Raffles is amazing. If it is out of the price range, at least check out the elephant bar. The city has some beautiful avenues, recommend taking a Tuk Tuk everywhere. It's the best way to absorb the Khmer architecture whilst traveling around town. Seeing the killing fields was heavy but good to see.
went to cambodia last year with my wife. highlights of phnom penh:
betelnut tour to phnom tamao wildlife park. best $40 you'll spend there. pic related. you get to feed/play with/interact with all the animals, and you get a literal home cooked feast for lunch. best meal i had the whole trip.
memorable cambodia cruise was cool, too. cheap cruise on the mekong run by cambodian hospitality students. when my wife and i went on it we were literally the only guests on the boat. evening cruise was beautiful.
feel good cafe is great for some familar food when you've hit your limit of food cooked with lemongrass and palm sugar. their french toast is fucking phenomenal.
fcc has shit service and meh food for the price, but a great view and happy hour.
if you like shopping there are some cool covered markets and night markets to check out, mix of locals and tourists.
are you spending the whole trip in phnom penh, or is that just the part you're looking to fill?
>>1072448 thanks. my wife took it. we got lucky with the elephant being out and about. there are always elephants there you can feed, but not always ones you can touch.
>>1072254 >>1072271 heavy for sure, pic related, but such a critical part of cambodia and humanity's history they deserve a visit. i recommend doing them both in the same day, and bookend that day with lighter days. don't start or end your trip with that experience.
>>1072706 hard to pin that down specifically. if something smelled good we just stop and try it and hope we wouldn't lose diarrhea roulette (never did, fwiw). the markets had multiple options, and big boulevards would always have carts, especially after dark.
side note-street food was one of the few times we found riel useful. for nearly everything else we used american dollars. probably made stuff a bit more expensive, but the difference of 20-30% is pretty negligible when stuff was so cheap.
