柬埔寨金邊風情 The Sensuality of Phnom Penh, Cambodia

對還沒踏足過柬埔寨的人來說,這片土地一直是神祕的國度。而往往提起這國度,立馬聯想到的總是那波瀾壯闊的吳哥文明,不過我Sophia這次不介紹吳哥,反而想帶大家暢遊昔日的「東方小巴黎」–– 金邊。這裡或許不如其他首都氣派華麗,也不以文物古蹟讓人流連,但柬埔寨悠久而復雜的歷史,在此留下了點點印跡,處處充滿高棉風情。來一趟金邊,絕對能讓您更了解柬埔寨!
For those who have not stepped on Cambodia, the Angkor civilization may be their only impression of the country. However, I prefer showing you around the city of Phnom Penh, which is known as the oriental Paris for its rich history. Follow Sophia’s guidance and explore the Khmer style of Cambodia!


金邊王宮 感受皇室生活

金邊和吳哥擁有兩個截然不同的感覺,吳哥有一種神秘的氛圍,每一座寺廟都有不同特色,古代人的建築之美留為世人「閱讀」,而金碧輝煌的金邊王宮,又是另一種建築美學,是柬埔寨最珍貴的文化古跡之一,也是遊客必遊之地。

來到王宮,主要是欣賞其建造結構,映入眼簾的金黃色屋頂與牆身讓我歷歷在目,其塔狀尖頂更是高棉最經典的傳統建築風格,同時這裡亦是現今國王及皇室成員居住的地方,幸運的話,舉行重大慶典時更可一窺國王真面目!王宮回廊上長達數十公尺的彩繪壁畫亦值得一閱,傳說是百多年前由四十多位畫師所繪畫,記載著柬埔寨歷代王朝的豐功偉績及印度教神話故事。誠然,王宮所有建築中以銀閣寺最為華麗,地面由近五千塊銀磚鋪成,殿內供奉的佛像由九十公斤黃金所鑄造,鑲嵌了近萬顆鑽石,最重一顆達二十五克拉,令人嘆為觀止。

The magnificent Royal Palace

Unlike the mysterious temples in Angkor with distinct characteristics, Phnom Penh attracts tourists for the magnificent Royal Palace that embodies the most precious cultural monuments in Cambodia.

The main admiration of the site is its structure. The golden roof and tower-shaped spire both represent Khmer’s classic architectural style. As the residence of the king and his family members, you can even take a glimpse of their real faces during big celebrations. Dozens of meters of painted murals on the Royal Palace corridor are decorated with the achievements of the Cambodian dynasties and the Hindu myths are said to be composed by more than 40 painters from 100 years ago. Adorned with a life-sized gold Buddha decorated with diamonds, the largest of which weighs 25 carats, the Silver Pagoda is definitely the most splendid building in the palace.


國家博物館 賞無價之寶

若要了解一個地方的歷史和文化,我會推薦您到當地的博物館一探究竟。柬埔寨國家博物館建於1913年,雖然位於聲名遠揚的王宮背後,面積不大,但卻是世上擁有高棉物質文化遺產最為豐富的博物館之一,目前約有一萬五千件吳哥時期的珍貴歷史文物,每次只固定陳列展出約二千件。以往曾有人走私這些文物,小小一件藏品價值高達五百萬美金,無疑是無價之寶。

說到我對這博物館最深刻的印象,就是它那四合院的開放式設計,黃牆紅瓦,棕櫚石像和雕花門的高棉古寺廟建築樣式與法國殖民建築風格融為一體,異國風味十足;四個人造荷花池更以草圃及長凳相間,有如一道道隔音牆,阻隔了館外鬧市的喧囂,任憑遊人靜靜遊賞,來杯熱茶坐一旁,定會頗有在自家庭院悠然自得享受下午茶的意境,愜意舒服。

Prestigious National Museum

Built in 1913, the National Museum stands behind the prestigious palace. With more than 15,000 cultural relics, it is one of the museums that possesses abundant Khmer historical heritages. Only about 2,000 pieces of exhibits are displayed at each regular exhibition. Even a small piece may cost more than USD 5 millions.

What impressed me the most is the open design of the courtyard. Combining features of traditional Khmer temples with French colonial style is what makes the architecture exotic. You can enjoy the leisure with a cup of tea in the comfortable atmosphere created by four artificial lotus pond, pleasant grass and easy benches.


全地形越野車 驚險刺激

對於熱愛追求刺激玩意的我來說,單以景點遊形式探索高棉歷史確實略為沉悶,假若大家也跟我一樣,租一輛全地形越野車,到金邊近郊飛馳,體驗駕馭和冒險的極致感覺。清風從耳邊呼呼而過,風馳電掣的快感,令悶熱感覺一掃而空。

別以為越野車難以操控,整台車只需一隻姆指便可控制,加上教練在出發前一對一的指導,即便是新手,也能安心玩個痛快。整個旅程像是一場在叢林中的探險,一路的未知讓人興奮莫名,教練更不時在旁左穿右插,帶領大家穿越各路複雜的地形,過程驚險刺激!

If you are not so interested in exploring the Khmer history, let me show you the excitement of high speed in the suburb of Phnom Penh.

With a double-thumb control system, this off-road vehicle is easy to handle for freshers after the one-on-one instruction. Your coach will guide you when you are driving through the jungle. What a great way to enjoy a thrilling adventure!

近郊探秘 迷你吳哥窟

駕駛途中更可窺見金邊最具風土人情味的一面,除了沿途向您熱情歡呼的小朋友,小店老闆看您大汗淋漓的樣子,還會主動送上消暑椰子,讓人暖入心脾。另一吸引之處,導遊更會帶大家走訪只有當地人知道的秘點探險。

當中以迷你吳哥窟──Ta Prohm最為震撼,誰想過金邊也有一座吳哥窟?這座迷你吳哥窟距離金邊30公里,在洞里巴蒂湖旁,和最著名的巴戎廟於12世紀時同期修建。雖然這裡沒有巴戎廟般多達二百多座的「微笑高棉」,但同樣可欣賞到精緻曼妙、訴說千年故事的高棉石雕,令人驚嘆。

Along the way, local customs and cultures should warm your heart with enthusiastic cheers from kids, shop owners offer you coconut juice and your guide will share secret explorations.

Located 30 km from Phnom Penh, stands a mini Angkor named Ta Prohm, which was built in the Bayon style during the 12th century. Unlike Bayon’s powerful architecture and the richness of its sculptures, the site fascinates visitors with its exquisite Khmer stone carvings conveying the marvelous tales of thousands of years.


湄公河之美

來到金邊,又怎可錯過有「東方多瑙河」的湄公河美景?湄公河是亞洲最重要的跨國水系,跨越泰國、緬甸、柬埔寨、寮國與越南等地,是世界第十二長河流。想徹底感受這條宏偉的河流,最好的方法莫過於在傍晚時份乘坐木制的遊船,以最傳統、最浪漫的方式,飽覽浪漫的東南亞風情。

登上船板, 漂浮在綿延東南亞各國的湄公河上,可看到金邊河畔旁的城市景致,金邊王宮、現代化高樓建築、水上村落、天際線和暮色低垂的城市光影,猶如一幅精致的油畫。在船上感受著涼風送爽,眺望著金邊的美麗夕陽,看著潮汐更迭的景色,惟一想做的,便是讓時間定格。

The beauty of Mekong River

The Mekong River, also honored as ‘the Danube in the East’, is the world’s 12th longest river flowing through Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Streaming down the river in a sampan is the most romantic way to fully enjoy the view in Phnom Penh.

The city landscape including the Royal Palace, modern highrises, water villages, skylines and the dusk make an exquisite oil painting along the bank.


金邊金界酒店 最頂級綜合娛樂酒店

金邊氣候相對炎熱,氣溫最高可達攝氏四十多度,不想每天汗流浹背?大可到金邊金界酒店內休閒娛樂,這裡除了是柬埔寨最大的五星級酒店外,亦是國內惟一的頂級豪華娛樂場,且金界二期於去年年底開業不久,連同金界酒店合共提供1,658間客房及套房,兼有27 家餐飲場所和多個全天候現場表演舞台等。最讓我欣賞的,是整座酒店除了金碧輝煌外,還不時可見柬國的特色雕塑,真的有種穿越時光隧道進入吳哥古國的時空交錯感覺。

Magnificent beauty of NagaWorld

Phnom Penh can be blazing hot and the temperature can go up to more than 40℃. To escape the soaking sweat, you can stay at the NagaWorld, the largest five-star hotel in Cambodia. Naga2 opened at the end of last year and provides altogether 1,658 guest rooms and suites as well as 27 dining places and multiple live performances. Apart from the magnificent beauty of the entire hotel, the unique Cambodian sculptures can be seen everywhere, just like crossing the time tunnel into the ancient Angkor empire.


歐式情調——Le Gourmet

柬埔寨曾是法國的殖民地,當置身全國最豪華的金界酒店內,也可以一嚐與殖民地歷史互相輝映的正宗法式風味。踏入門口,已見4位分別演奏大提琴、小提琴及結他的琴師以樂章迎接客人,配以店內吊燈及名畫的裝潢,歐式情調極為濃厚。這裡的巧克力噴泉華麗至極,把新鮮的水果、法式馬卡龍等配料沾上滿滿的巧克力,喜愛甜品的朋友不容錯過!喜愛吃肉的朋友則可來一客燒戰斧牛排骨,重量級的牛扒重達800克,服務員會現場去骨切肉,震撼程度相當高。

Authentic French – Le Gourmet

Cambodia is a former French colony; hence, the hotel offers authentic French dishes. Entering Le Gourmet, 4 musicians playing the cello, violin and guitar greet the guests with music. The interior is decorated with chandeliers and famous paintings, revealing a strong European atmosphere. The chocolate fountain, fruit and macarons are just ready for those with a sweet tooth. Meat lovers can order a portion of 800 g Tomahawk steak, which will be well-prepared and served.


奢華中餐廳——金鑾殿

出國旅遊,偶然也會想念家鄉菜餚的味道,向大家推薦金界二期一所全新開張的中餐廳——金鑾殿,不論是阿拉斯加帝皇蟹或其它生猛海鮮,或是粵式料理, 皆可在這大快朵頤。餐廳以金色和紅色作主題裝飾,富麗堂皇。眾多美饌中,我最愛蛋白蒸湄公河大頭蝦,蒸出來的蛋白混合著鮮蝦膏的清香,猶如乳酪般細嫩爽滑;菠蘿黑豚叉燒則以上等黑豚肉配撘焦糖菠蘿,酸酸甜甜十分開胃。

Hall of Golden Chimes

If you ever get homesick with your stomach, the new Chinese restaurant at Naga2, Hall of Golden Chimes, offers Cantonese dishes and other seafood options. The red and golden decoration gives visitors a splendor of the space. I loved the tender steamed shrimps and the sweet and sour roast pork cooked with pineapple the most.


長生不老水療 舒緩疲憊

旅行的意義,除了增添快樂回憶之餘,同時亦要好好調理身心靈,舒緩平日累積的疲憊,所以我多會推薦大家安排一個水療護理,從內到外煥然一新。位於金界二期的長生不老水療,可說是疲憊身心的桃花園,在面積近300呎的水療套房中,可獨享按摩浴缸、桑拿與蒸氣室等,我就選了女生最愛的玫瑰花瓣泡泡浴,浸在池內喝一口香檳,平日繃緊的精神頓時放鬆不少。

The Elixir of Life Spa

The Elixir of Life Spa at Naga2 is quite a refreshment during the journey. There is a massage bathtub, a sauna and a steam. I have got the girls’ favourite – a bubble bath with rose pedals. A sip of champagne at the same time totally relaxes me.


特級花式調酒師

金界酒店內還可找到全城最火熱的狂歡派對,因這裡有多間不同形式的夜店,如設有卡拉OK包廂的888俱樂部、每晚有駐場樂隊表演的達令達令音樂酒廊與設有大舞池和DJ的F高級俱樂部,定能找到最適合自己的場所。

若您跟我一樣追求色、香、味俱全的雞尾酒特飲,金碧地絕對屬不二之選,因這裡的調酒師除具備調酒技能外,還擁有功架十足的高超調酒技巧!點上一杯雞尾酒,調酒師便以乾淨俐落的手法把酒瓶、杯子拋上拋下,配以舞台上色士風演奏者的歌曲,彷佛在跳探戈一樣,極盡視、聽、味覺之享受。

Golden Horizon

The hottest parties are nowhere else to be found other than NagaWorld. It has clubs of different forms, including Club 888 with karaoke, and others with live concerts and dance floor. There is certainly one club for you.

If you like the taste and smell of the special cocktail drinks like I do, you must not miss Golden Horizon. The bartenders have fancy skills in preparing your drink. You can enjoy their performances with nice jazz music at the same time.
