Raffles Hotel Le Royal is situated in the heart of Phnom Penh and has done since 1929 albeit in a slightly different guise. If your stay here is part of cultural tour of the Far East or if you are on your way to the white sand beaches of Sihanoukville it makes no matter; at this meeting of the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the Tonle Sap rivers this capital has a story to tell. Booming today it may be but it is unlikely you will be able, or choose, to gloss over the tragic past of Cambodia’s people who remain unfalteringly stoic, optimistic and welcoming. Tread amongst them and be enriched. A local guide will give you a private tour around the riverfront, Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda but he will also show you the secret backwaters, the colourful markets with street vendors, the Russian market and much more. So far the city planning has kept the skyline view to the horizon unlike most South East Asian cities, so far so good.
