  • The full day city tour takes in both Phnom Penh's ancient past with a visit to the Grand Palace as well as its more recent, turbulent history with visits to the Killing Fields and the infamous S-21 prison. Audley recommends the Friends restaurant in the centre of the city for a great place to stop and have lunch.

  • An early start today is the only way to ensure that you see the magnificent colours of the Khmer sunrise whilst being surrounded by the crumbling, jungle clad ruins of Ta Prohm. You will have the place to yourself at dawn and the mist rising from this ancient ruin really adds to the eeriness of Ta Prohm. You return to the site later in the day to explore the remaining temples on the main complex.
