What to do and see in Phnom Penh, Cambodia: The Best Museums

April 8, 2022 Matilde Konrad

Budget-minded travelers will appreciate Phnom Penh's reasonably priced hotel rooms (several top-rated hotels on TripAdvisor offer rooms around $40/night). Explore the city's temples, palaces, and the remnants of its French colonial history. Just outside the city, the The Killing Fields (Choeung Ek) are a reminder of Cambodia's tragic past-- a somber contrast to the booming city of today.

My second visit to DinArt and 4th painting! Din is a very talented self-taught artist. He is well known for his stunning depictions of the otherworldly Apsara, and also beautiful abstracts and other Cambodia-inspired works. Din is really friendly and happy to talk about his inspiration and work, & is quick to respond to enquiries and will also create custom orders. The works are really affordable and are a beautiful & original keepsake or gift from this wonderful country.

Py Ngav, the Proprietor, is a wonderful designer of fine jewelry. His friendly manner and creativity make for a unique experience to his lovely shop in the heart of downtown Phnom Penh - right next to the National Museum. Py's sister is a gentle and lovely presence in the store too. I found several pieces for various family members in the shop and had one piece custom made. I was very pleased with everything. I highly recommend a trip to Lotus Space. The store is a pleasure to visit and the decor and ambiance well worth the visit too. Unique, custom made jewelry at affordable prices! You can't beat that.
