Cambodia

Cambodia the Kingdom of Wonder.

Once known as the Khmer Empire and officially known as the Kingdom of Cambodia is well known for its history, both depressing and inspiring.

In addition to the famous ruins of the Angkor dynasty, Cambodia is home to a wealth of exceptional off the beaten path locations. A southern coastline flaunting stunning beaches, scenic cruises along the Mekong and voyages onto Asia’s largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap, add several other dimensions to the Kampuchean experience. Visitors to Cambodia will experience a growing arts and craft scene and a nation proud of its Angkor Dynasty heritage.

Exploring Cambodia

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.

When Should I visit Cambodia ?

The winter months (October-February), are the best time to travel to Cambodia as the air is cool and the skies clear. However, the dust at this time of year can be irritating and the crowds at the Angkor temples at their highest numbers. March to May sees hotter temperatures and dry skies, and the heat continues into June and through August when the monsoon season starts. The rains however do not usually cause a major problem for travelers as they tend to be short and hard afternoon showers
