Cambodia is still rather new to international visitors, making it ripe for exploring and discovering. Previously closed to the outside world under the Khmer Rouge regime, Cambodia now provides an enchanting holiday destination.
Now is the perfect time to visit for deserted beaches, untouched jungle and the cornucopia of archaeological sites.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat in the north west of Cambodia, near the bustling town of Siem Reap, is an experience that is unsurpassed. Staying at luxury hotels close by, many visitors dedicate a few days to touring the temples that date back to the 9th century. With trees growing through crumbling facades, and lotus flower-inspired towers still intact, the mysterious air will have you captivated.
The lively capital of Phnom Penh offers temples, the Royal Palace, a vibrant social scene, as well as numerous opportunities to shop for handicrafts. The Tuol Sleng Museum provides a sobering insight into Cambodia’s painful past, but it also serves as testimony to the people’s resilience.
Sihanoukville on the Gulf of Thailand is the perfect tropical beach retreat. While the lush nature of the Bokor National Park, crater lakes of the north east, and the mighty Mekong River all make unforgettable excursions.
