The Silver Pagoda is located within the compound of the Royal Palace. Inside the gleaming yellow walls of the palace compound are the Throne Hall and the Chanchhaya Pavilion, made specially for classical Cambodia dance performances.
Originally a wooden structure, the palace was first constructed in 1892, during the reign of King Norodom. It was rebuilt in its current grandeur by King Sihanouk (now King Father) in 1962. 5329 pieces of silver tiles, each weighing 1.125 kilograms, make up the floor of the Silver Pagoda. The silver flooring alone weighs over six tonnes.
The National Museum can be easily recognized by its distinctive rusty-red exterior and traditional Cambodia terracotta roof. Built between 1917 and 1920, the National Museum offers a vast, stunning collection of ancient Khmer artifacts. There are more than 5,000 interesting items, including an eight-armed statue of Vishnu (7th Century), a statue of Shiva (9th Century) and a statue of the Buddha from the pre-Angkor period.

It is a must to take a river cruise on the Tonle Sap, the Bassac and the Mekong. These three rivers meet in the capital city and empty themselves into a lake or a Chaktomuk.
A river cruise is an excellent way to immerse yourself in the romance of Phnom Penh. There is nothing like watching the sunset while having dinner on board.
