If you are looking for somewhere a little off the beaten track then visit Cambodia for your next holiday. It ticks all the boxes, from culture to beaches, to adventure and a luxury.
We have a wonderful itinerary which covers all the highlights you must see. Start in Phnom Penh which is the capital city. Cambodia, although a very welcoming stable country now, has a dark past to it. In the 1970’s the country was ruled by the Khmer Rouge regime where over a million Cambodians were killed.
Their troubled past has shaped the way Cambodians act towards each other, and there is a real sense of gratefulness. In Phnom Penh, see the Royal Palace, the Genocide museum and The Killing Fields. It is a very important part of their culture so it’s worth a visit.
After Phnom Penh head to Siem Reap, which is known as the capital for temples as it is home to the majestic Angkor Wat. The temple is so important that it even is part of the national flag.
Siem Reap is filled with many Hindu and Buddhist temples, each displayed their own uniqueness. Hop on a tuk-tuk and your driver will take you to the best ones.

What some people do in Cambodia
If you are looking for the best holiday picture, then brave the early hours of the morning and head to Angkor Wat and watch the sunrise over the temple. It is an amazing experience, one you will never forget. Another activity you can do is take a boat trip through the rice fields where you can see the rice farmer's house on stilts, which are built so high up to stop them from flooding. The boat will cruise along the river and end in lake Tonle Sap.
