The beautiful city of Phnom Penh is the largest in Cambodia, a picturesque destination notable for its hospitality and rich local culture. Whilst this fascinating destination has long been a popular stop off for backpackers, more recently it has seen an influx of business travellers and luxury holidaymakers. Phnom Penh is growing at an impressive rate and is now one of Southeast Asia’s rising stars, where visitors can encounter the charming confluence of old and new, ornate temples and shrines alongside western-style shopping centres.
One of the busiest airports in the world, London Heathrow is at the very epicentre of the international air transport network. Investment has been poured into its development, and in 2014 the newly constructed Terminal 5 was voted World's Best Airport Terminal in the Skytrax Annual World Airport Awards.
Handling more than 73 million passengers a year, London Heathrow is a remarkable feat of logistical organisation. Fly from London Heathrow with Qatar Airways to a wide range of destinations all over the world.
Transportation and parking
London Heathrow is served by the London Underground ‘tube’ service, making it easy to reach in just half an hour, from the very centre of London. For passengers with Qatar Airways flying from Terminal 4, the terminal has its own dedicated tube station.
There are also hundreds of buses every day from the capital, and coach services transporting passengers from all over the city to the airport. Parking is at a premium, and although there are both short and long-term options, it is best to book parking in advance. A valet service is available. Note that there is a 2.6-metre height restriction on Terminal 4’s forecourt.
Arriving at London Heathrow
Flights from London Heathrow with Qatar Airways leave from Terminal 4, which is located at the south end of the southern runway, and is connected to Terminals 1, 2 and 3 by the Heathrow Cargo Tunnel.
Qatar Airways flights from London Heathrow make use of the very latest A380 airbuses in their service to Doha, as well as a luxury Business Class-only service using a modern A319 for one of its six daily flights to Doha. Passenger boarding gates are situated close to the check-in and security halls.
Amenities and facilities
Because of its international importance, London Heathrow offers a vast array of facilities and amenities, from baby care and children’s crèches, to shoeshine services, banking, Wi-Fi access and prayer rooms.
A broad selection of luxury retail outlets stock the very best in accessories, watches, jewellery and fashion, while a number of outstanding restaurants, eateries and snack bars serve everything from full meals to light bites.
For many years known as the ‘Paris of the East’, today Phnom Penh is regaining its stature on the world stage as a capital city that welcomes and enchants visitors from all over the planet.
A complex and quirky city full of unexpected sites and filled with warm, welcoming people, Phnom Penh is now also turning into a commercial powerhouse that is embracing international commerce with open arms.
Book a flight to Phnom Penh and discover a city full of juxtapositions between ultra-modern developments and traditional culture, with a distinctly French Colonial undertone that can still be seen in its architecture.
The Royal Palace has to be on every visitor’s itinerary, with not one but two stunning pagodas within its grounds; the Silver Pagoda and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.
These were in fact built in the 19th century using French technology and traditional Cambodian designs, making them an interesting mix of two very distinctive cultures. Note that no photography is allowed inside the Silver Pagoda, and visitors are expected to dress respectfully.
The National Museum of Cambodia gives visitors a fascinating insight into the culture and history of the country, from ancient times through to more recent events.
Its main attraction is a rather fine statue of the 12th century ruler King Jayavarman VII, as well as a host of artefacts and magnificent art from the country’s ‘golden age’.
Just outside the city is Wat Phnom, a tranquil open space with an ancient temple at its heart. The park is home to a troop of monkeys, who can be quite cheeky and steal visitors’ drinks if they leave them unattended.
