PHNOM PENH BUDGET TRAVEL GUIDE (with DIY itinerary, top attractions, tips and how to get there)

The capital of Cambodia, PHNOM PENH, was once hailed as the “Pearl of Asia” until the 70’s when Khmer Rouge wreaked havoc and totally devastated the peaceful life of Khmer people resulting to one of the biggest genocides in history with around 1.6 million reported death toll.
