The Kingdom of Cambodia has a wealth of history and culture from the ancient temples of Siem Reap to the bustling city of Phnom Penh. Angkor Wat and the surrounding 700 ruins are so significant that it not only features on the flag, but locals believe that if you haven’t seen it, you haven’t truly seen Cambodia. However, Cambodia is more than this. You will witness beautiful, wild landscapes of rivers and mahogany trees in Battambang and Kampot, the picturesque beaches of the south islands, as well as learn the recent history of the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s.
Due to its prominent location, it is easy to combine a trip with Thailand or Vietnam as part of a larger Southeast Asia adventure.
For the more adventurous, you can take a helicopter ride over Angkor, and cruise along the might Mekong between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
Gourmet Cuisine & Dining Out
Throughout Siem Reap and Phnom Penh you will find both local and international cuisines, with more and more restaurant choices popping up daily. The best location to eat and drink in Phnom Penh is the waterfront; plenty of restaurants and bars with a view.
Local cuisine is similar to Thai but with few spices. The national dish of Chicken Amok is a must, and is very similar to curry. You can also enjoy it with the likes of fish if that is more appealing.
