In the last few years, many new places of entertainment have opened in Phnom Penh.
Dreamland, located close to the beautiful Royal Palace and scenic riverside, opened in 2011 as the first amusement park in Phnom Penh. It hosts many theme park rides, a wide variety of delicious food, attractions such as a maze and dinosaur land and a huge electronic arcade. All the rides are European-made, and are rigorously safety-checked, and topped off with a huge Ferris wheel which offers fantastic views of the area. If you want to whizz through the air on white-knuckle rides, Dreamland is certainly the place to go!
Besides this, Phnom Penh is home to a wealth of festivals and events. The art scene is booming in Phnom Penh, with many exhibitions and galleries showing art and shows from around the world. To those who wish to experience traditional Khmer dance, music and history then Phnom Penh is the place to be! These have increased greatly in number in the past few years, and now you can even tour one of Cambodia’s favorite beer breweries!
Kids City opened in June 2013, providing a unique indoor leisure and educational centre in the centre of the city, with activities including rock climbing, laser tag, go karting, and playgrounds for both toddlers and young children.
Since then, in July 2014, Aeon Mall has opened its doors to the public. It offers a wide range of new, fun activities for all ages. Kids Park, located on the first floor, is an action packed play area for children to explore and enjoy. In doing so, they offer their parents time to relax, enjoy a coffee or bite to eat in one of the many establishments, or browse in the many shops and stores. On the third floor the action really kicks off with an eleven lane bowling alley, a multi-screened cinema and a games arcade, which is packed full of the latest computer games and activities. The pièce de résistanceis the brand new Ice Park, which has just opened on the top floor, offering ice skating, laser tag bumper cars, and a unique snow tunnel for those who wish to experience the fun of being caught in a snow storm!
Don’t be afraid to jump right in and enjoy all that this incredible city has to offer!
