It all leaves you wondering </p><p>how a city like this works. But it does, somehow. </p><p>Phnom Penh is a city of contrasts: East and West, poor or rich, serenity and chaos. </p><p>Although a city has a reputation as a frontier town, due to drugs, gun ownership and all </p><p>other things, a more cosmopolitan character is being forged out of the much. Monks </p></li><li><p>saffron robes are once again lending a splash of color to the capitals streets, following </p><p>the reinstatement of Buddhism as the state religion of the Cambodia since 1989, and </p><p>stylish restaurants and bars line the riverside. However, the amputees on street corners </p><p>are a constant reminder of Cambodias tragic story. Perhaps the one constant in all the </p><p>turmoil of the past century has been the monarchy shifting, whimsical, pliant and, </p><p>indeed, temporarily absent as it may have been. </p><p>The splendid royal palace, visible to all, was a daily reminder of this ultimate authority </p><p>whom even the khmer rouge had to treat with caution. The royal palace area, with its </p><p>glittering spires, wats or temples, stupas, national museum and broad green spaces, is </p><p>perfectly situated alongside the river and is as pivotal to the city as the city is to the </p><p>whole Cambodia. </p></li><li><p>Getting to Phnom Penh </p><p>Phnom Penh international airport lies approximately 10 KM west of the city on the road </p><p>No 4. There are flights to Phnom Penh from Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Vientiane and </p><p>Siem reap. A taxi from the airport to the city center should not cost more than US$ 7 </p><p>and a motorbike about US$3 and the whole journey takes between 40 minutes and one </p><p>hour, although at peak times the roads are often gridlocked, so be prepared for delays </p><p>in the morning and late afternoons. </p><p>Boat and bus travel </p><p>Most of the Cambodia tour packages are getting into the country via southern Vietnam </p><p>and through the Mekong delta with several boats. It is possible to get to the Phnom </p><p>Penh by boat and bus from Chau Doc in Vietnam and by road crossing at Moc Bai. </p></li><li><p> Getting around in Phnom Penh </p><p>Lomphatas (motorbikes taxis) provide the nearest things to taxis in Phnom Penh. If you </p><p>are traveling alone, then ask your hotel to arrange you car-hire services, but if you travel </p><p>with a tour then your package is included all the transfers as well as the transportations </p><p>between each destination, however, you may want to get the more of city then most </p><p>motorbikes ubiquitous. Most visitors use the local motodops where you ride on the back </p><p>as a quick and efficient way of getting around after the tour hours. Be advised that riding </p><p>a moto can be risky; wear a helmet. There are cyclos too, which undoubtedly appeal to </p><p>many tourists as almost all Cambodia tour packages include a ride through the city on </p><p>their itineraries. </p></li><li><p>At present there is no public transport system in Phnom Penh. A bus network has been </p><p>mooted and theres even talk of a futuristic sky train to link the river with the airport but </p><p>without any concerns plans in place at this stage both projects seem years away. When </p><p>traveling on any form of public transport in Phnom Penh, be wary of bag snatchers. </p><p>Luxury Travel Vietnam, LTD </p><p>Plan your Cambodia tour packages and travel with experts of Luxury arts.
