Event Description


Halfway between a life-sized investigation, an original city-tour and a treasure hunt, Urban Tales Phnom Penh puts you in the shoes of adventurers going back in time in search of a lost Khmer antique and a mysterious French explorer. By following this journey, you will enjoy an original self-guided tour in the heart of the city.

This 1/2 day excursion has been especially designed for independent travellers willing to discover the city by themselves. The scenario will lead visitors to some of Phnom Penh best kept secrets: century-old temples, unknown monuments and hidden lanes.

Urban Tales is also a formidable chance to meet locals who will interact with you all along this scripted walking tour to bring you additional clues and help you solve the mystery of the missing notes of Anatole Pasquier.


Will you be able to find the missing notes of Anatole Pasquier and solve the mystery?

Follow In The Footsteps Of A Mysterious French Explorer And Investigate!

In 1881, a French explorer named Anatole Pasquier visited the interior of Cambodia during an expedition that lasted 11 months and brought him as far as the deep jungle of Mondulkiri.

His writings and drawings make an invaluable description of the wildest regions of South East Asia at the time. In June 1881 he stopped in Phnom Penh for one day only in order to resupply.

What exactly happened for the next few days remains a mystery…

An old object dating back from the very beginnings of the city of Phnom Penh had been lost.

The Department of Archaeology of the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh recently traced again this relic and is now looking for somebody to investigate on this special issue. It needs you to follow in the footsteps of a mysterious character in order to gather all the clues leading to the truth.
