Cambodia is rich with history, delicious food, beautiful coastline, and an energetic nightlife. Whilst it is perhaps most famous for the stunning temples at Angkor – and unfortunately also for the brutal war that took place here – Cambodia is full of surprises and glorious sights and experiences to delight visitors from any walk of life. The atmosphere is mysterious and enticing, and the Cambodian people are among the most honest, warm and welcoming anywhere in the world. So whether exploring stunning temples, tracking through traditional sleepy jungle villages, swinging back and relaxing on serenely peaceful beaches, indulging in delicious cuisine, or partying in the country’s booming capital Phnom Penh – Cambodia really is an exceptional experience you will never forget.
