Cambodia Information

Overview  |  History  |  Sightseeing

Few countries in the world offer the kind of fascinating intrigue that Cambodia does. Seemingly ill-fated since the fall of the Khmer empire in 1431, the country has only recently thrown off eras of despotism and plundering by its neighbours- even France- to quietly emerge as an important international tourist destination. Despite noticeable progress in the way of accommodation and infrastructure, Cambodia offers just enough exoticness to excite travellers who enjoy a touch of adventure. Most of the past concerns regarding safety expressed to visitors have dissipated, though, and have left behind one of the most interesting cultures in the world to visit and explore.

The crown jewel of Cambodia is the Angkor Wat. One of the true wonders of the world, this temple is the main reason tourists come to Cambodia, as it is over 800 years old. Fused by Hindu and Buddhist influences, the Angor Wat is a masterpiece of traditional Khmer architecture and has helped make the nearby city of Siam Reap a major tourist destination for travellers to Southeast Asia. Siam Reap offers a wide variety of accommodation, ranging from five star luxury hotels and resorts to family-friendly guesthouses.

If nature and temples are not your preference, Cambodia offers a wide variety of pursuits, from sporting activities to festivals such as the Bom Om Tuk festival, which celebrates the end of the wet season in early November. An amazing country which features friendly people and fascinating landscape, Cambodia also has deep jungles, deserted beaches, and all manner of national parks, such as Bokar and Virachay.

Charming Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital, offers interesting blends of architecture, thanks to its days as part of colonial France. Its time as a colony imbued the city with many French influences in its buildings and food. Many visitors start and end their journey to Cambodia in this city, known as the “Pearl of Asia” in the 1920’s, as it offers a wide selection of modern hotels and excellent restaurants, as well as a flashy nightlife.
