With its neighbours, Vietnam and Laos, Cambodia forms the region we know as Indochina. This friendly country really is the Asia of old, with neatly tended rice fields, ornate temples, charming people and a traditional way of life.
More recently Cambodia has opened up to tourism and offers first class hotels and excellent sightseeing opportunities.
The town of Siem Reap boasts a well preserved French Quarter, an Old Market area and a fascinating Cambodian Cultural Village. Siem Reap is also the gateway to the famous Temples of Angkor which can be enjoyed by bike, by foot, with a guided tour, or even by air.
South of Siem Reap, you’ll find rural fishing villages living on Lake Tonle Sap.
Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh is a vibrant city filled with reminders of a colonial past and a riverside full of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.
Phnom Penh is also where you will find the insightful yet painful history of Cambodia’s Killing Fields and Genocide Museum; an unpleasant yet important tour to take for anyone wanting to really get to know Cambodia.
The beach resorts of Cambodia’s southern coast offer relaxation, isolation and access to nearby remote islands.
Wherever you decide to stay in Cambodia, your Asia Expert will design the holiday that’s right for you.
