Day 2 Phnom Penh City Highlights
Today, you will spend a full day visiting the major sites of Phnom Penh. After breakfast, your guide and driver will pick you up from the hotel and escort you to the Royal Palace first, which is still the living place for the King of Cambodia. Built between 1866 and 1870, this palace has traditional Khmer architectural style and religious colors. The minarets of palace buildings represent prosperity; yellow and white colors represent Buddhism and Brahmanism respectively. The Throne Hall is where the kings of all dynasties were crowned, while the Silver Temple is the holy place for the kings to worship Buddha, named for the nearly 5,000 silver bricks on the floor of the hall, which is quite gorgeous. The murals in the corridors are Indian mythological stories carefully drawn by 40 artists.

From the square, you will walk a few minutes to the National Museum, where you can see many religious artworks on display and you will learn about the history of Cambodia from these collections. Around noon, you will be taken to a good restaurant with authentic local food for lunch.

And how do they teach their young generations about this? Your professional guide will provide full explanations.
