Couples Holidays in Cambodia

Couples can have fantastic holidays in Cambodia

Cambodia is exotic, exciting, beautiful and captivating - exactly the kind of destination you want to travel to for a holiday with your loved one. There are so many unique sights and experiences to have in the country that you're bound to leave with wonderful and lasting memories.

One of the big appeals of Cambodia as a holiday destination is that it's not as popular as some of the other nations in south-east Asia, so you won't find huge masses of tourists, which always helps to make the trip more romantic and special. Close neighbours Thailand and Malaysia have steadily developed their tourism offerings and, while they're fantastic places to visit, they don't provide the same off-the-beaten-track atmosphere that Cambodia does. So, Cambodia is a refreshing alternative for loved-up couples seeking new adventures together.

What's more, the country is home to some spectacular attractions that really stand out in the whole region - the Tonle Sap Lake, for instance, is the largest freshwater lake in this part of Asia, while the Angkor Wat complex is world-renowned for the quality and number of its temples.

You've also got fascinating cities to explore and stunning beaches where you and your partner can enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation - the perfect all-round holiday destination.

Romantic experiences

There are some truly wonderful places for romantic moments in Cambodia, one of which is the aforementioned Angkor Wat complex. This huge archaeological site is home to dozens of temples and other structures that date from the period of the Khmer Empire, when the country was incredibly prosperous.

Although visiting the site during the day and wandering around its many temples is a magical experience, you really need to see it at sunrise or sunset to view it at its most beautiful. This is also an incredibly romantic scene to enjoy with your loved one. For sunrise, the majority of travellers head to the Angkor West Gate, which can get crowded but that does offer incredible views of the complex as the sky lightens.

For a truly memorable sunset scene, make your way to the Pre Rup temple. Again, this can be busy, but it isn't the most popular spot around Angkor for watching day turn to night, so you won't be battling too many other travellers for a view.

Another must on a luxury tour of Cambodia is spending time in the capital Phnom Penh. There are some truly beautiful districts of the city where stunning temples sit within sight of the mighty Mekong River, or where colonial-era buildings stand close to modern skyscrapers. Delve into luxury boutiques, wander the vast halls of the National Museum or enjoy dinner for two at one of Phnom Penh's excellent restaurants.

Discover Cambodia together

To truly appreciate Cambodia, you need to travel around, rather than spend all of your time in a single destination. A tour of the country will not only allow you to visit its bustling cities like Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, but will also take you to some of its outstanding natural attractions.

Tonle Sap Lake is a real must, where you can see houses on stilts lining the banks and even floating villages out on the water. Exploring with your partner, meeting the locals and seeing how these communities survive through fishing and agriculture, is a real eye-opener and an experience you won't forget.

Bokor National Park is another excellent place to include on your tour if you want to get back to nature. This large nature reserve is home to many endangered species, including tigers, Asiatic black bears and Indian elephants, as well as being where you'll find an abandoned French colonial hill fort. There's something wonderfully romantic about seeing the buildings on a verdant green plain surrounded by forest.

Luxurious accommodation for a special stay

Whether you're jetting off for an annual holiday or to celebrate a special occasion like an anniversary or even your honeymoon, you'll want every aspect of your romantic escape to be just right. There are plenty of fantastic hotels in Cambodia where your every need will be catered for and where you can enjoy luxurious surroundings for the duration of your holiday.

After spending time sightseeing and touring around the country, it is a good idea to allow a few days to relax and unwind on the stunning beaches at Sihanoukville - the nation's premier beach destination. The golden sands are picture-perfect and there are always plenty of secluded spots where you and your loved one can enjoy the scene of the blue waves crashing onto the beach in complete peace and quiet.
