Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh is the capital as well as the largest city in Cambodia. It is also a political, economic, industrial, cultural and tourism center with a city area of ​​370 square kilometers and a population of about 2 million. Located in the delta of the Mekong River, Tonle Sap Lake and the Basha River, it was once the “Asian Pearl” and “Oriental Paris” in western perception, while the Chinese used to call it “Four Arms Bay”. After several years of fighting, the quiet Phnom Penh could not hide her mysterious and charming style. The remains of French-style buildings from the colonial era were scattered around the city of Phnom Penh, and the bustling crowds thundered on the streets full of ethnic customs. Every Saturday and Sunday, the riverside area of ​​Phnom Penh is full of vitality. There are no serious pollution like it is in other Asian cities. The charm of Phnom Penh lies in the lush boulevards, colonial buildings and monks in orange-red robes. Phnom Penh is an ancient cultural city with many monuments and scenic spots. The Royal Palace of Phnom Penh preserves the style of Angkor architecture during the heyday of Cambodia in the 11th century. The inside palace includes more than 20 large and small palaces such as the Conference Palace, the Throne Palace, and the Treasure Palace. And for the outside, the palace is surrounded by yellow walls. Phnom Penh also retains the evidence of the dark rule of the Khmer Rouge era, allowing countless people to remember this history and to be grateful for the peacetime. There are many monks in Phnom Penh, which can be said to be one of the cities with the highest proportion of religious professions in the world.
