Cambodia Holidays

Peaceful and serene, wild and resilient; the simply mesmerising Cambodia will cast its spell on you with its magnificent temples, bittersweet history, golden beaches and inspiring locals.

Cambodia

Inspiring, remote, naturally beautiful and with an unmistakable air of mystique, the former Khmer Empire that is now known as the Kingdom of Cambodia is a land of spiritual encounters, enriching cultural adventures and unforgettable discoveries. From the irresistible appeal of its amazing temples and ruins to its bittersweet history (the remnants of which can still be seen and felt today) this peculiar and remarkably unique Southeast Asian nation is bound to cast a spell on you and move you in more ways than one.

Introducing Cambodia

A land known for its temples and for having what is considered to be the eighth wonder of the world at Angkor Wat (a site of mind-blowing ancient ruins comparable to only a few other spots in the planet), Cambodia wows and intrigues, it astounds and amazes. But beyond the world-famous temples and historical ruins, Cambodia has much more to offer.

If you're seeking adventure you won't be short of options here. From upcountry trips discovering modern and upcoming sights such as the cities of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap - the epicentre of new Cambodia brimming with a world-class dining scene, to the beauty of the rural countryside at the village of Kampong Cham – a great place to see the real Cambodia, you have an ample choice of places to visits and experiences to enjoy.

If you're after amazing natural landscapes and unforgettable wildlife encounters, Tonle Sap Lake is Asia's premier bird sanctuary set in a huge lake with floating villages. Or, for a quirky and totally different experience, head to the ghostly site of the former French hill resort at Bokor National Park.

Mighty temples, historic ruins and natural landscapes

Even when the last half-millennium has been devastating for Cambodia with many of its neighbours plundering the once great Khmer Empire and savaging much of its original glistening beauty, which has been eroding steadily war after war, you can still discover much of this country's former glory and grandeur by following the trail of the once powerful Khmer Empire. With as much as 90 per cent of Cambodia's population being direct descendants of the Khmer people, the history lives long after the empire's fall.

Amaze yourself at the sight of the ruins in the Angkor Archaeological Park and ascend to the realm of the gods at Angkor Wat or learn about the country's darkest era when the Khmer Rouge was in power (the tyrannical ruling party that orchestrated the Cambodian genocide) at the Tuol Sleng Museum.

Don't miss the chance to discover the chaotic charm of Phnom Penh, Cambodia's charismatic capital, standing a world away from the rural countryside. Witness its cultural renaissance, be mesmerised by riverside beauty and enjoy its trendy wining and dining scene Whichever side of Cambodia you choose to explore, we guarantee it to be an enriching experience.

Discover the warmth of the Cambodians and bathe in their golden beaches

Many say that beyond the magnificence of its remarkable temples, Cambodia's real treasure lies in its surprisingly resilient, warm-hearted people. After years of suffering, bloodshed and impoverishment, the Khmer people have emerged strong and determined with an unbreakable spirit to push on. You can have the privilege of meeting such inspiring people at rural villages such as Krek and Kampong Cham.

If you want to go for a swim during your holiday in Cambodia, Sihanoukville in Kep is the number one seaside destination for many travellers visiting Cambodia and taking a break from all the sightseeing to enjoy some time in the sun. This beach resort is re-emerging in the tourist map and is a desirable location for topping up your tan and basking in emerald-green waters.
