Visit the colonial-style Elephant bar with live music and try one of their famous cocktails!
We loved Cambodia and learned a lot from the warm and engaged guides, Sothi and Huang. We were also surprised at how much we liked Beijing. Eric too was a fantastic guide and made us think of China and its place in the world differently.

For over eighty years, the Raffles Hotel le Royal has been the choice of royalty, dignitaries and celebrities travelling through the capital of modern Cambodia, Phnom Penh - and is, without doubt, the premier address in the city.
A grand, colonial style hotel, it was reopened in 1997 after an extensive and tasteful restoration by Raffles International. Today, it offers world class facilities with an elegant, but relaxed style and service that is second to none.
The rooms and suites retain the elegance and stylish ambience defined by the hotel's classical design. Offering a choice of views overlooking the beautiful tropical gardens and swimming pools from private balconies, they are wonderfully intimate spaces, and feel more like upscale apartments than hotel rooms.
Best time to travel
The best time to travel would be during the dry season of October to March, avoiding the monsoon season of June to September. Temperatures remain fairly constant year round.
