Phnom Penh, Cambodia


Thunder Ranch Shooting Range
The Thunder Ranch Shooting Range is located near the Killing Fields of Cheoung Ek, about 17 km south from Phnom Penh. The shooting range is managed and operated by a unit of the Royal Cambodian Army. For a pretty hefty fee you can fire everything from pistols to machine guns at paper targets. Firing automatic weapons like a Chinese made AK-47 or M-16 would cost you around USD30 per clip.

River Cruises on the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers
You can find tourist boats clustered on the river along Sisowath Quay, just north of the Passenger Port (near Wat Phnom). Tour options include short river cruises and sunset cruises along the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers. 
The cruises start around USD10-15 per hour, depending on the duration and number of passengers. A tour cruise typically takes about 1-2 hours and runs up the Tonle Sap River along the central riverfront area, providing a picturesque view of the Royal Palace, National Museum, Phnom Penh skyline and then across the Tonle Sap and up the Mekong River to view floating fishing villages. Arrange directly with the boat operators or through your hotel or tour agent.
