Travel to Cambodia
In addition to the famous ruins of the Angkor dynasty, Cambodia is home to a wealth of exceptional off the beaten path locations. A southern coastline flaunting stunning beaches, scenic cruises along the Mekong and voyages onto Asia’s largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap, add several other dimensions to the Kampuchean experience. Visitors to Cambodia will experience a growing arts and craft scene and a nation proud of its Angkor Dynasty heritage.
Siem Reap is the gateway to the Temples of Angkor, magnificent ruins built between the 9th to 14th centuries. More than 100 temples are located in the area and several days can be spent wandering amongst the monuments. Accompanied by an expert guide, travelers will learn about the history of the temples, their religious significance, and the methods used to build them. Siem Reap is also home to the Tonle Sap Lake, a natural wonder full of floating villages and mangrove forests.

In the center of the country is Phnom Penh, the busy capital city and a must-visit on Cambodia package tours. Situated at the confluence of three rivers, a boat trip a fabulous way to arrive in the city. Travelers can reach Vietnam’s Mekong Delta to the southeast or travel to Siem Reap on a beautiful cruise along the Tonle River and Tonle Sap Lake.
Phnom Penh is a mix of colonial buildings, Buddhist temples, and leafy boulevards. Although developing rapidly, the city still retains a rugged charm. Specialized cultural excursions, historic tours of the tragic Khmer Rouge monuments, and trips to nearby villages are all fabulous ways to learn more about the capital and the country on Cambodia tours.
