They were also brought to other attractions in Phnom Penh such as the National Museum, the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda, and the Central Market, Malacañang said in a press statement on Friday, May 12.
The tour is typical of activities organized by a host government for family members of a visiting leader.
Avanceña has taken on the role of Philippine First Lady on several occasions. During the ASEAN Summit and Related Meetings in Manila in April, she hosted the ASEAN leaders' spouses during their stay, and accompanied Duterte at the ASEAN gala. – Rappler.com
