The majestic temple of Angkor Wat rises above the ancient city of Angkor in Cambodia, creating a dramatic landscape that basks in the rising sun. You’re sure to find amazing experiences here, and our team are happy to guide you on a standout tour of the area.
The town of Siem Reap is the gateway to the temples of Angkor, which lie a few miles north of the town. The scale of the monuments at Angkor is vast, from the huge walled city of Angkor Thom to the iconic landmark of Angkor Wat. They are sure to leave an overwhelming impression on the mind. As the centre of the great Khmer empire that flourished for centuries, the site is one of the greatest archaeological sites of the world. Several days are needed to explore the temples, and much more lies beyond.
The golden spires of Phonm Penh's royal palace glisten on the banks of the Mekong. Phnom Penh is Cambodia's capital, once known as the “Pearl of the East”, and some of the flavour remains in its Parisian-style boulevards. Ravaged by war and revolution, the city has rebuilt itself to create a modern, busy metropolis with a lively riverside walk, boutique bars, and restaurants. Grim reminders of its past are available at the Museum of the Genocide at Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields of Cheong Ek.
The “Great Lake” of Cambodia, the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia, is linked to the Mekong River, and is regularly replenished by the rainy season. A centre for biodiversity in the region, it is also the home to many who live in floating villages along the shoreline.
Named after King Norodom Sihanouk, the father of modern Cambodia, Sihanoukville, also known as Kampong Som, is Cambodia's main coastal town and only deep-water port. Its fame, however, derives from its many sandy beaches and the access to the offshore islands, which attract backpackers and those seeking a castaway lifestyle.
