Phnom Penh International Airport is located about 7-10km west of the city. To get from the airport to central Phnom Penh, travellers are advised to grab an airport taxi directly outside the passenger terminal for a ride to town. This journey could take anywhere from 25-50 minutes (depending on traffic conditions), at a fare of about SGD$15.
If you’re more adventurous and don’t have a lot of luggage, grab a tuk-tuk to your hotel instead of a regular cab. These breezy, open-air vehicles would cost only about SGD$9 and offer a more authentic experience of traditional Cambodian transportation.
What to see and do
Make sure you visit the gorgeous Royal Palace. An actual functioning royal residence, the Royal Palace continues to be home to the King and Queen of Cambodia today, as it has been since the 1800s. On select days, the gates of the Palace open to allow visitors a rare glimpse into the decadence inside. Walk the hallowed corridors that have witnessed countless royal births, deaths and coronations, and admire the magnificence of the Throne Hall and open-air theatre. Of special note, however, is the 20th-century Napoleon II villa, a pavilion which was specially gifted by the French Empress Eugenie.
Take a walk through the country’s painful past at both the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and Choeung Ek Killing Fields. Documenting the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge, the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, formerly a school, was converted into the notorious S-21 prison. Choeung Ek has its own bloody past, with over one million people being executed by the Khmer Rouge on The Killing Fields. Tourist visiting today can expect to see a stupa with over 5,000 skulls and human bones littered across the site.
