Often paired with neighbouring Vietnam on tour, a trip to Cambodia is a must for visitors to Southeast Asia. Whilst the mighty temple complex of Angkor is the crowning jewel, there’s much else to see and discover in the country. It’s important to learn about Cambodia’s dark history under the Pol Pot regime, and it makes the emergence of vibrant Phnom Penh all the more impressive. Tonle Sap Lake is the country’s lifeblood, and the party town of Siem Reap is popular with backpackers and older travellers alike.

Cambodian Cuisine

Cambodian cuisine is renowned for its fresh ingredients, bold flavours, and diverse regional specialties, with Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai influence. After the years of poverty and deprivation under Pol Pot, when people were forced to eat what they could find, it is still possible to sample scorpion on a stick.

Emerging cities

After a turbulent past, the modern skyscrapers of Phnom Penh are testament to how far Cambodia has come. But it has lost none of its cultural flair, with the lavish Silver Pagoda and the Royal Palace among the highlights of a city tour. A visit to the former Tuol Sleng security prison, formerly a school is also a must for visitors.
