Cambodia

Angkor Wat is archaeologically essential, and along with the buzzing capital of Phnom Penh, the countryside’s wild jungles, pristine beaches in the South and a smattering of offshore tropical islands, Cambodia is a beautiful and rewarding visit. But it’s not just about ticking Phnom Penh and the wat off your list – the city of Siem Reap earns its place in Cambodia’s list of highlights thanks to its beautiful riverside location, its fine dining and its night-life. Escape the buzz of the cities for the quiet rural countryside, soaking up Cambodia’s true essence amongst the rice paddies and sugar palms. After three decades of war, peace has finally come to Cambodia, and you’ll find that visitors are welcomed with open arms.
