Tourism to Cambodia continues to evolve but at the heart of every holiday here is adventure and a desire to stray from the beaten path. You will feel privileged to discover the untouched beaches on the south coast and the pristine forests in the Cardamon Mountains. Across the country there is a sublime feeling of remoteness that many international visitors find attractive.
After landing at Phnom Penh International Airport you will have the enticing and exotic capital at your fingertips. Resting on the banks of the Tonlé Sap and Mekong River, Phnom Penh was once known as the “Pearl of Asia.” This pretty nickname was inspired by the French contributions to the city’s architecture and design. Today the city is undergoing an exciting cultural renaissance to retake its former glory after the devastating destruction during the country’s civil war. While you explore this magnetic city be sure to pay a visit to the Royal Palace, the official residence of King Sihamoni. Although most of the palace is kept private, visitors may stroll through the throne hall and the Silver Pagoda complex, adjacent to the Palace. The Silver Pagoda is a dazzling spectacle, carefully constructed with the finest precious metals and gems. The floors contain five tons of silver and the statues of the Buddha are made of pure gold, diamonds and bronze. Phnom Penh has a surprising foodie culture that rivals anywhere else in the region. So whether you grab a quick lunch at an outdoor market or a three-course meal at an elegant restaurant, Cambodian cuisine will not disappoint.
A quick flight to Siem Reap International Airport will take you to Cambodia’s national treasure, the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat. The “temple that is a city” is a source of great national pride for Cambodia and is considered the eighth wonder of the world. The ancient temple’s precise symmetry and elaborate stone carvings are a sight to behold and enchant everyone who visits. Siem Reap has plenty to offer on its own, with a host of busy backpackers, chic hotels, top-of-the line spas and divine dining options, visitors can spend weeks exploring every inch of this cosmopolitan destination. It is still the temples of Angkor that continue to be the biggest draw to Siem Reap, making it one of the top destinations in the country.
