Cambodia is a dreamland for those who are tired of well-promoted destinations and predictable routes. This country is a bit rough, a bit wild and very exotic. The touristic routes are focused in certain areas and if you are there for the first time, we do not advise you to step off them. Due to recent civil conflicts vast territory of Cambodia is still mine-strewn. But even if you explore the recommended destinations, you will find a lot of things to do and to marvel at.
The places to see in Cambodia are not so many. Start with Seam Reap and discover the world biggest temple structure – Angkor. It was the spiritual and administrative centre of mighty Khmer civilization. The old times have passed, but the eminent ruins still remind of the great bygone era. Get a boat cruise to the villages living on the water. Tonle Sap will be a good chance to see local communities that preserve traditional crafts and lead a traditional life.
The Mekong River and the capital Phnom Pehn are other top choices for travellers in Cambodia. Take a daytrip to discover the artefacts of Cambodian colonial past, taste local food and enjoy breathtaking sunsets at River Mekong.
