Afternoon walking tour of Phnom Penh city, Cambodia
Explore Phnom Penh like a true local, on an afternoon guided adventure through the city. Meet up with our friendly team of local expert guides for a walking tour of the lesser known side of Phnom Penh and some of its popular highlights.


Meeting up in the mid-afternoon puts us in good stead to explore Phnom Penh during its relatively quiet afternoon. This tour is designed to give you an insight into the locals perspective of Phnom Penh, whilst also ticking some of the must-see boxes.

Starting at the Grasshopper Adventures shop we make our way around the city using a mix of local transport and walking. This tour has something for everyone, with vists to markets, local snacks stalls, religious shrines and the Royal Palace. With no two days the same in Phnom Penh we have a flexible itinerary to show our guests the best side of each unique day, whilst ensuring every adventure is a unique and exciting one!

Please note: Cambodian day tours will not operate April 13th to 18th due to the Khmer New Year holidays. We will re-open April 19th and apologise for any inconvenience. Hope you enjoy the many celebrations happening this time of year!

What our guests tell us...

Just a selection of our other great tour reviews!

This was one of the best experiences I have had traveling. I felt like I saw parts of Phnom Penh that only the locals go to. I was the only foreigner at the local coffee shop and noodle shop--and it was awesome … It was wonderful connecting with a local, being with the locals, and still getting to explore must-see spots of this vibrant city.
