If you want to experience some of the most inspiring and incredible sights of South East Asia, look no further than Cambodia. So much more than just a holiday, a visit to Cambodia will not only bring you to some of the world's best ancient sites, but will envelop you in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, a fascinating culture and a slice of real South East Asian life.
The country's most famous attraction is Angkor Wat, the largest religious complex ever built and ancient capital of the Khmer empire. It was built in the 12th Century CE and without doubt one of the most awe-inspiring ancient sites on Earth. It's Cambodia's most visited site and features on the country's flag. We spend a good amount of time exploring the site and taking part in the pethora of optional activities in nearby Siem Reap.
Phnom Penh is a capital full of life. Lying on the edge of the Mekong River, Phnom Penh is the perfect place to relax after an adventurous day and is a fine place to be to see picturesque sunsets over the city's lake. Here is where we can learn about Cambodia's recent tragic history of the brutal Khmer Rouge dictatorship and the resulting genocide, at the Tuol Sleng Museum and Killing Fields memorial.
Getting into rural Cambodia is a great opportunity to see the rice paddies and sugar palms of Cambodia. The landscapes here are second to none, and as you venture further into the provinces you can discover a slice of true Cambodian life.
With the Mekong River flowing through the country, there is also a chance to see some of the only freshwater dolphins left in this part of the world!
