Most people come to Cambodia briefly to visit the Angkor temple complex, and specifically Angkor Wat, which is one of the 7 man-made wonders of the world. They then sadly leave without properly exploring this fabulous holiday destination. Each part of the country has hidden secrets and offers broad experiences throughout your holiday in Cambodia. Whilst justly famous for the magnificent temples, Cambodia, amongst those in the know, is regarded for its abundant natural attractions and empty beaches.
The tourist infrastructure in Cambodia has developed tremendously in recent years, including the opening of quality hotels and restaurants and the upgrading of roads and transport links. Cambodia is more accessible today than at any time in the past three decades, and a journey here is a journey to a land of timeless grace and charm. Get back to nature! See the famous Irrawaddy dolphins and local tribes people. Take a walk around a crystal clear volcanic lake and swim under a cascading waterfall. Ride a Cambodian elephant enjoy a jungle trek. Or simply take time to relax on the beautiful sandy beaches and enjoy the fabulous seafood. Nowhere is this better symbolised than at the majestic Angkor temples, a timeless testament to the ingenuity of the Khmer people.
Beyond Angkor lies the vibrant capital of Phnom Penh, gateway to the remote north-east, a land of hill tribes, Cambodian wildlife and bold landscapes; and the south coast, with hidden beaches, national parks and empty islands. Many of these destinations are not widely known in the outside world, leaving you feeling more an explorer than a tourist.
