Welcome to Cambodia...
Cambodia treats visitors to a wealth of ‘off the beaten path’ locations that unveil the ancient qualities of this rugged country. Emerging as one of Asia’s more compelling capitals, Phnom Penh has transformed itself to gracefully blend a riverfront location with remaining colonial structures and a deeply fascinating history. However Siem Reap remains the most visited destination and is home to picturesque streets full of boutique shops, busy markets and an immense range of eateries to suit all budgets, and of course, the stunning Angkor Wat complex. The coastline of Southern Cambodia is noted for its quiet, tranquil atmosphere and pristine beaches that are still largely undeveloped or overcrowded. In addition to the coastline’s unspoiled beaches and idyllic offshore islands, the area is also home to lush tropical forests and attractive towns such as Kep and Kampot.
