Travelling independently, Phnom Penh is a city best enjoyed at your own pace, without the timetable of a tour. If you really want to have an organised city tour, most of the leading guesthouses organise city tours including the sights listed earlier for around US$6 per person. Prices mentioned do not include entrance fees.
Those interested in the new-wave Khmer architecture from the Sangkum era (1953- 70) should sign up with Khmer Architecture Tours (www.ka-tours.org). These tours take in some of the most prominent buildings in the city and take place on foot or by cyclo, usually starting at 8.30am on weekends. The website also includes a DIY map of the most popular walking tour. For more on this landmark architecture, pick up a copy of Cultures of Independence (2001) or Building Cambodia: New Khmer Architecture 1953-70 (2006).
For those wanting to discover another side of Phnom Penh, try Mango Cambodia (@ 998657; www.mangocambodia.com), which offers trips into the surrounding countryside to meet the friendly locals. Supporting sustainable tourism with their country ‘detours’, Mango Cambodia also operates a small bed-and- breakfast in the capital.
