Inspirations for a holiday in Cambodia
Take the road less travelled and see some parts of Cambodia that are sometimes missed. Here are four inspirational things to see and do when travelling to Cambodia
Visit the Foreign Correspondent's Club
The Foreign Correspondents Club (or FCC) in Phnom Penh gained fame and notoriety in the late 70’s. It was the haven for foreign journalists in need of solace and cold beer away from the war weary streets of the capital. They’d hastily get their exclusive stories ready for the morning papers. Nowadays it is a popular hangout and a great place to grab a cold beverage especially from the cool roof top bar!
Relax on Sihanoukville's beaches
White sand beaches, undeveloped tropical islands and a laid back traveller vibe make Sihanoukville Cambodia’s most happening beach destination. Occheuteal Beach is a 4km long strip of sand with ramshackle restaurants, Serendipity Beach is a rocky outstrip with atmospheric bars while Victory Beach is perfect for families. Excursions to the nearby islands offer opportunities for snorkelling, diving and kayaking.
Aspara Dance Performance
The walls of the sprawling Angkor complex are adorned with engravings of ladies performing an ancient dance – known as Aspara. Whilst in Siem Reap (home to Angkor Wat) you can head to a traditional dance and dinner evening where you will witness firsthand how these dances look plus you get to enjoy some delicious authentic Cambodian cuisine at the same time!
The faces of Bayon
In the middle of the Angkor Thom complex in Siem Reap sit 54 gothic towers, each with four faces on them – one facing in each direction. These impressive 216 faces are said to represent the four sublime states of Buddhism – charity, compassion, sympathy and equanimity. A walk through here is highly recommended and sure to put a smile on your face!
Suggested Tailor-made Holiday itineraries for Cambodia
Whether you're looking for a foray into Cambodia's many incredible archaeological wonders or an Indiana Jones-style adventure combined with some beach time, we've got an itinerary to suit you encompassing neighbouring Thailand and Vietnam for double the fun.
With wild jungles and national parks, pristine southern beaches and offsure islands, beautiful temples and vibrant cities, Cambodia has so much more to offer. Aside from Phnom Penh, the nation’s proud capital located on the mighty Mekong River with beautiful colonial architecture and old-world charm, and Siem Reap, gateway to the fabled Angkor Temples, Cambodia remains refreshingly untouched by tourism and is ripe for discovery.
