When planning a trip to Southeast Asia, you are confronted with many possibilities. Maybe too many! Such a big array on varying cultures and not two places you will go to are the same. Wherever you want to go, let us convince you that Cambodia is such a beautiful and interesting country you cannot skip while travelling there.

Maybe you know the feeling: you have a limited time schedule to tour around and you need to decide which places you’ll go. One thing is sure: the destination is Southeast Asia and the possibilities are enormous. Let us tell you why Cambodia must be your destination.

Angkor Wat
When you hear other travellers speak about Cambodia, Angkor Wat will be mentioned first of all. Which is logical! Angkor Wat is the biggest and most important religious monument in the world. Plan your trip there early in the morning, and make sure you won’t miss the sunrise behind the main temple. Another tip is to do a hotair balloon trip to view the region from above. You’ll never forget this experience.

Awesome beaches and bounty islands
When you are in the South of the country, you’ll see multiple beautiful white sandy beaches. Definitely in the Sihanoukville area.
Beside these tropical beaches, Cambodia has numerous fantastic islands which are not yet discovered by mass tourism. Take your journey to for example Koh Thmei, Koh Tonsay, Koh Ta Kiev or the better known island of Koh Rong.

The always smiling locals

Cambodia is also known as the “smiling country”. Historically speaking, the country didn’t have many things to be happy about in the past, nevertheless you will meet happy and smiling people everywhere. Difficult not to be influenced by this joy and happiness. I guarantee that after your Cambodia trip, you go home much happier!

Budget friendly

Everything is cheap! And if we say “everything”, we mean it. Cambodia is such a country where you can get many things with a very limited budget. Whether it is about accommodations, food, local transport or activities.
Tip: don’t always chose the cheapest! By paying a little bit more (and the price differences are really minimal), you can’t believe how much more comfort you get in return.

History

Cambodia is a top country to visit if you are interested in learning more about the rich history and culture of the places you see. You will be surprised to know that Cambodia’s history was dark but so interesting. It is a country in Southeast Asia that has been confronted with many episodes in a very short time.

The ultimate destination for jungle treks

Sleeping in hammocks, deep in the jungle next to waterfalls! In Cambodia you can have the feeling of being the “George of the jungle”. Some nice areas to do multiple days trekking tours are Ban Lung or Koh Kong.

The typical “sleepy” villages or hamlets

You have had enough of the busy touristic centres? Come to rest in the sleepy towns of Kampot or Kep. Enjoy some of the finest seafood in the world. Once there, you forget all the troubles, you even forget the time.

The capital of Phnom Penh

Many people adore Phnom Penh! Others don’t feel like it! I’m a big fan.
Phnom Penh is a modern Asian city, but not as hectic and touristic as many other Asian big cities.
The Royal Palace, the beautiful temples, museums and the beautiful boulevard are so much worth seeing!
