From laid-back beaches and lush jungles to ancient structures and pristine
mountains, Cambodia is a land waiting to be rediscovered.
Visit Siem Reap’s magnificent temples, abandoned centuries ago by the
Khmer kingdom and now surrounded by its lush forests. Most famous is
the awe-inspiring Ankor Wat – only now starting to reveal its hidden
secrets. Ready your camera for the mysterious Ta Phrom, now engulfed
by huge tree roots, as well as the giant smiling stone faces of the Bayon
temple. With untouched jungles spanning the heart of the country, lush flora and fauna, and a culture untouched by the western world, we have only scratched the surface.
Cambodia is much more than temples. The history of Cambodia is both inspiring and sobering, uplifting and heartbreaking. In Phnom Penh, witness stark reminders of the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge. This country of 15 million people is still recovering from the Khmer Rouge, which left it in devastation 30 years ago. Be prepared for an emotional journey which will stay with you for years to come.
