Room after room the museum displays photographs of men, women and children covering the walls from floor to ceiling, virtually all the people pictured were later killed.
Afternoon tour of Royal Palace, National Museum & Sunset Cruise: After lunch at a local restaurant (on own account) continue to discover the Royal Palace built in 1866 by King Norordom. See the different structures of the pagoda-style compound and stroll in its beautiful garden. Visit the Silver Pagoda so named because of its floor that is comprised of 5000 silver tiles. A gold Buddha excrusted with 9584 diamonds and a small 17th century emerald and baccarat crystal Buddha are also housed here. Next, visit the National Museum. Built in 1917 it is an exceptional example of traditional architecture and is exclusively devoted to preserving and displaying Khmer art and sculptures. Hundreds of pieces are housed here including both pre-and post-Angkorian pieces. Finish your tour at the city’s namesake, Wat Phnom. Founded in 1373, the pagoda was built to house Buddhist relics washed ashore by the river. Later this afternoon enjoy one-hour sunset cruise on the Mekong and Tonle Sap Rivers. The boat will pass past floating villages, providing great views of the city’s rapidly changing skyline.
