Almond Bassac Hotel Phnom Penh is located in the largest city and the capital of the Kingdom of Wonder.
Founded in 1434, Phnom Penh was always noted for its beauty, its tranquil riverside location and its historical architecture and attractions. The city was regarded as the "Pearl of Asia" by the French and “the belle of Southeast Asia”, one of the loveliest cities in Southeast Asia.
In the early 1950s during Cambodia’s brief, first post-colonial independence period Phnom Penh’s reputation for charm and beauty was further enhanced with the construction of several significant and prestigious state buildings by His Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk and carried out by his town planners, led by the influential Khmer architect, Vann Molyvann. A number of Molyvann’s impressive architectural structures still stand in the capital, with several surviving French colonial buildings scattered along the grand boulevards.
A city with a turbulent history, Phnom Penh is today a peaceful place with a deep and rich culture married to a bright and modern future.
