Step into the ancient society of the Khmer kings at the ruins of the historic capital city and spiritual center of the empire. Angkor Wat is the “must see” star of Cambodia and worthy of a multi-day visit. Enhance your trip with time spent outside of the main temple complex to explore other temples relatively untouched by the masses and engulfed by the jungle, offering an exhilarating sense of discovery.
Outside of Siem Reap’s temples, the capital city of Phnom Penh touts the impressive National Museum and the sobering Tuol Sleng Genocide museum, both serving as powerful reminders of Cambodia’s past. Taste the best of Cambodia in authentic Khmer seafood delicacies with a dash of French colonial influence and see rich culture come to life in a performance of Apsara (traditional Khmer dance.)
From traditional hospitality to ultra-modern accommodation, Cambodia offers a wide range of places to stay throughout the country. There is especially a fine choice of hotels in Siem Reap while visiting Angkor Wat. With French colonial influences you can be sure of a stylish stay for your sojourn near the world-famous temples of Angkor. Phnom Penh also features luxurious to mid-range accommodation to enjoy while you explore this bustling city along the Mekong. Outside of the cities, alluring new luxury hideaways have sprung up within lush gardens, amid paddy fields or even on a private island, providing a relaxing and exotic escape after your temple exploration.
