From the sleepy local villages on the Mekong River, to the bustling cafés and colourful markets of the capital Phnom Penh, Cambodia provides a plethora of memorable experiences for visitors.

"For those seeking ancient culture and history, Cambodia’s World Heritage Site of Angkor, near to the city of Siem Reap, is well worth the pilgrimage."

Surrounded by so many large, dominant neighbouring countries, Cambodia has remained remarkably individual in style, retaining its unique Khmer identity.

Fast earning plaudits that are helping to put its troubled past into the shade, with beaches that are as beautiful, wilds as rugged, cuisine as laudable, and temples as awesome as those of its neighbours Thailand and Vietnam, this is a country that has all the requisites for a stunning and scintillating visit – yet is still so far off the beaten track you’ll be thinking you’ve got it all to yourself.

  • Amansara Siem Reap

    True 1960s cool brought bang up-to-date, the sleek modernist architecture of this former royal guest house has been exquisitely restored. But the real highlights are the guided temple excursions by remork (moped-powered trishaws), balloon, or helicopter.​

Creating special moments

  1. Take in Temple Town

    Take in Temple Town

    Often side-stepped for the temples of Angkor Wat, Siem Reap is worthy of much attention in itself, with its lovely riverside location, a burgeoning cultural scene, and one of the region’s buzziest dining and drinking scenes.

  2. Hit the Beach

    Hit the Beach

    The port town of Sihanoukville is also Cambodia’s premier beach destination, with miles of powder-white sand stretching around its headland and warm tropical waters. Try the delicious freshly-caught crab and shrimp, too: both local specialities.

  3. Animal Magic

    Animal Magic

    The setting for Colonel Kurtz’s jungle camp in Apocalypse Now, Ratanakiri is one of Cambodia’s most remote and pretty provinces. Home to Virachey National Park, one of the largest protected areas in the country, this is serious trekking country.
