Phnom Penh Airport
Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia, located on the Mekong River and Tonlé Sap River. It’s a busy city with 1.5 million inhabitants and a lot of construction work going on. Phnom Penh was never a big tourist attraction, but things are changing. This is one of the reasons why a new airport will be opened, located 30 kilometres south of the city.
