Cambodia - Phnom Penh (Chapter)
This is the Phnom Penh chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cambodia guidebook.
Phnom Penh: the name can’t help but conjure up an image of the exotic.

The city has risen from the ashes of revolution and war to take its place among the hip capitals of the region, with an alluring cafe culture, bustling bars and a world-class food scene.
