Phnom Penh was once considered a ‘nothing’ city, but today it is changing into one of the hippest cities in Southeast Asia. Modern stylish bars and coffee shops are found in almost every corner of town. But the highlight for some visitors remains Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, or S-21 Prison, a horrific former jail where more than 10,000 prisoners were tortured and killed. Other attractions that should not be missed include the National Museum, the Royal Palace, and Central Market.
