With its ancient lost cities, serene monks, and captivating customs, Cambodia is difficult to beat.
Enigmatic and mysterious, rarely do countries evoke as much intrigue as Cambodia. Traditionally overlooked in favour of its more famous neighbours – Thailand and Vietnam – and haunted by its tragic recent past under the tyrannical Khmer Rouge, this beautiful country is now rapidly gaining recognition on the world stage. Making up for lost time, since its liberation the nation has undergone an extraordinary cultural renaissance, and visitors here will discover delightful people with an amazing legacy, a delicious culinary scene, and, of course, some of the most amazing Buddhist temples and artefacts to be found in the entire world.
From the impossibly magnificent jungle-clad temples of Siem Reap to the idyllic private island paradises of the south or the soul-stirring heritage of Phnom Penh, this is a country on the rise. Whether you’re a beach worshipper, a romantic searching for seclusion, or a lover of history and culture enamoured by the stunning Khmer ruins, this intoxicating destination cannot help but dazzle and delight.
Cambodia's man-made wonders attract the most attention, but the nation's incredible natural beauty is just as inspiring. Defined by its rolling vistas of lush rice paddies, rugged forested highlands, thriving freshwater lakes and rivers, and alluring beaches, this small country contains a remarkably diverse range of striking scenery. Imbued with a peaceful, lost-in-time atmosphere, traditional stilted houses and floating villages dot the peaceful landscape, whilst in the cities you can still see the enchanting remnants of French colonial architecture juxtaposed with ornate Khmer pagodas and palaces, contemporary skyscrapers, and buzzing markets where you can indulge in the nation's rich street food tradition or the rich flavours of fabled Royal Khmer cuisine.
