Cambodia is one of the best places to take a vacation in South East Asia and there is a lot for visitors to see and do. Whether you feel like a beach holiday or want to soak up the rich Angkor culture you’ll find there’s something for everyone in Cambodia.
Start in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city where the Central Market is a maze of activity and the Royal Palace a beautiful place to explore. Spend time reflecting on the past at Tuol Sleng and take a river cruise along the Mekong. But Cambodia has far more to see and one of the major highlights are the Angkor temples at Siem Reap.
For people who come to Cambodia a visit to Angkor Wat is an iconic moment, especially at sunrise. These temples are hundreds of years old and are fabulous to explore.
Ta Prohm and Angkor Thom are also major temples at Angkor that attract visitors each year. Spend time heading out to the lesser visited temples of Banteay Chhmar and Koh Ker which are really atmospheric. Visitors to Cambodia can also learn to cook Khmer style and see exquisite arts and crafts being made. Spend time on Tonle Sap Lake and see the floating villages and another aspect of Cambodia. For a beach holiday one of the best places to go is Sihanoukville which has a lot of water sports from diving to kayaking.
You’ll find sandy beaches to chill out on too. The town of Battambang is a beautifully preserved colonial style place increasingly popular with visitors and close to Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary. Cambodia is increasingly popular and there is a lot more beyond the temples of Angkor Wat to discover. Plan your vacation to Cambodia today before everyone else gets there.
