Things To Do

Beneath Cambodia’s clatter of rickshaws and motorbikes lies the serenity of aging French Colonial mansions and temples that abate Phnom Penh’s chaotic landscape. Housed within the showy walls of the Royal Palace sits the Silver Pagoda, a fascinating structure lined with 5,000 blocks of silver weighing over 6 tons. This lavish nesting doll holds a 17th-century Buddha cut from Baccarat crystal, and another made almost entirely of gold and dripping with approximately 10,000 diamonds.
