I was lucky enough to spend some time in Cambodia’s lively capital city Phnom Penh recently during a long layover there on my way to Siem Reap to visit Angkor Archaeological Park. With just 1-day to look around, I headed for the Doun Penh District, where many of the major sightseeing attractions are within walking distance or a short tuk tuk ride from one another.

On foot, there is little escape from the tumultuous clamor along the city’s streets. Like most cities, traffic gets backed up during peak hours. Prepare to be bombarded by calls from tuk tuk drivers offering to cart you through the steady stream of buses, scooters, and cars that share the roads here. The air is thick with pungent aromas wafting up from this clamor and grind. Some pleasant and enticing from the countless restaurants, and street food carts, others brutally sour from pollution and whatever has been left behind to rot in the heat.

Here is what I was able to see on my trek. I found exciting, beautiful and exhausting.
