Map of Phnom Penh City with details including Embassies.

  • Phnom Penh: situated on confluence of Tonley sap, Mekong, and Bassac river.
  • City population: 1.2 million (government's UN sponsored census 2008)
  • Popular tour sites: Royal palace, National Museum, Wat Phnom, Sisowat Street (called River-Front street, best time in the evening)
  • Toul Sleng Museum and Cheung Ek Memorial: These places are memorial sites that reveal a grim and grisly evidence of mass tortures and executions committed by the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979) whose main mission was to cleanse the society of middle-class and people belonging to pervious regime, Khmer Republic backed by the Americans (1970-1975).
