PHNOM PENH :: SIEM REAP
Founded in the 14th century at the confluence of three rivers in southwestern Cambodia, exotic Phnom Penh became capital of the Khmer around 1432-and of Cambodia in 1867. With its dazzling palace spires, fluttering saffron monks' robes, sobering historical sites, and coveted location on the shores of the Mekong, this is one of Asia's true gems. Popular attractions include the graceful terracotta National Museum with artifacts dating back to the 4th century; Royal Palace; Silver Pagoda, famous for its floor made of more than 5,000 silver tiles; unique Independence Monument; and poignant Killing Fields, where hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children were slaughtered by the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s.
