Cambodia – home of Angkor Wat.
A holiday in Cambodia has a great many surmises to win the hearts of even the most jaded of travellers. There’s a freshness to the place, a vitality which is infectious and a simplicity to life which is captivating. Visitors inevitably find themselves falling quickly into step with Cambodia’s languid pace, and soon discover their cares evaporate. With ever-quickening steps Cambodians are casting aside the memories of their tragic recent history and extending a warm, welcoming hand of friendship. This is a country yet to be spoiled by mass tourism, where the smiles are nearly all genuine.
While the main attraction of Cambodia lies in Angkor Wat – the main temple located in Siem Reap, the actual Angkor temples spread over many miles of area and contain a variety of fascinating structures in varying states of repair. Days can be spent wandering these incredibly impressive buildings and a guided tour of 1, 2 or 3 days for you to gain the full understanding of what you are seeing.
The town of Siem Reap is worth spending time in as well, and while in Cambodia, a night or two to visit the capital city of Phnom Penh is worth including.
Just developing is the beach side town of Sihounikville so although most people spend 3 – 5 days in Cambodia you can also add time beside the sea.
Cambodia is a perfect add on to a Vietnam, Thailand or Singapore holiday – the temples are awe-inspiring and rival the experience felt when seeing the Pyramids and other great structures.
