Our tuk tuk driver stopped off on the way to the Killing Fields to allow us to see this. It doesn't take long to see this attraction.

Independence Monument is typical of these sort if monuments, located in the center of a traffic circle.

Best way to see this is by tuk tuk doing a drive by photo shoot. The roads are busy and there is little else to do around the site.

This is like a huge structure in the centre of the city. The surroundings & liveliness near this place is very good & you can easily spend couple of hours exploring all the nearby lanes

Located on a very very busy roundabout. Nice to see as a main landmark of the city but no need to hang around for long as there's nothing else there to see once you take your photos. Take a Tuk Tuk to drive past that's...More

Located in the center of the main boulevard, this is one of the landmarks of Phnom Penh. It is beautiful during the day and at night and it is hard to miss.

It is right in the centre of the road. Must be patient when taking photos as vehicles would pass by every now and then. Had nice photo though.

Chances are you'll drive by - NO NEED TO VISIT! Really! It's pretty at night time but there's nothing to see by stopping so have your camera out (but not snatchable by passing motos) to snap some shots!

The monument is a blast! Powerful and grace. Very well preserved. The only thing that I found difficult is to across the plaza and get there. Cars, bikes, tuktuks, motorcycles; all coming on a non stop way. Nice pictures and history
