Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s restless capital, is booming and prime for a visit. With one of the youngest populations in Asia, the energy in Phnom Penh is palpable, with scooters buzzing alongside tuk tuks and the occasional Rolls Royce. The money flowing in is hard to miss, with 5-star luxury hotels rapidly building an all new skyline. We recommend the Rosewood, Hyatt Regency or the Baitong Hotel as an intro to the all new Phnom Penh.
For those more into peaceful retreats, the Bale along the Mekong River makes an excellent choice.
