A short ride takes us to Wat Phnom an iconic landmark from where the city took its name. We then head off the beaten track, winding our way through the back streets to a small community whose neighborhood has become known for some expressive Street Art. Our next stop is S21 Genocide Museum which gives a harrowing glimpse into the rule of the Khmer Rouge who brought the country to its knees in the 1970’s. Leaving this dark time behind we immerse ourselves in one of Phnom Penh’s busiest and least touristic Local Markets.
