Fall for the unadorned beauty of Cambodia and explore the temples that riddle this unspoilt country. The breathtaking beauty of Angkor Wat is a major draw for most visitors, but we recommend exploring all parts of Cambodia to take in the abundant natural attractions of this stunning country.
Your trip to Cambodia wouldn’t be complete without marvelling at the iconic temple of Angkor Wat. However, Angkor is home to a multitude of temples dating from the 9th to the 14th centuries. Within easy reach of Siem Reap, take time to explore the area in all its inspiring glory.
The Gateway to Angkor, Siem Reap is just 3km south of the temple complex and although development is at hand, the city still retains the small shops, cafes and art galleries. Leave the tourist areas for a street food tour where you’ll experience market life, hidden food stands and eat like a Cambodian local.
South East Asia’s largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap is home to a huge diversity of fish and a large number of fishing communities that rely on the bounty of this great lake. A boat trip enables you to witness the unique lifestyle of Tonle Saps residents.
From the regal elegance of the Royal Palace, through to the thought provoking Tuol Sleng Prison and the Killing Fields, Phnom Penh is a city of contrasts. Take an early evening stroll along the riverside promenade before dining on a Cambodian feast.
The second largest city in Cambodia, Battambang is home to an emerging art scene and some of the finest French architecture in the country. Be sure to ride the Bamboo Train, one of the most eccentric and noisy contraptions you are ever likely to encounter.
Take a luxury escape to this untouched paradise that lies just a 35-minute boat ride from Sihanoukville. Built with sustainable materials and dedicated to local conservation, this opulent beach resort is the perfect sanctuary for total relaxation.
