Something different—this is exactly what the beautiful country of Cambodia has to offer. While its neighbors like Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia have become Asian hotspots for rest and recreation, those on tours in Cambodia are discovering a fresh take on the beauty and exoticism typically expected of Southeast Asia.
Grandiosity Like no Other
Asia as a region may be different, but all nations share a strong and shared heritage. From China to Thailand, and Myanmar and to the far islands of Indonesia, this part of the world is home to rich cultures and ancient temples unseen in other parts of the world.
Almost all countries in Southeast Asia have their fair share of temples and other unique cultural monuments, but none can compare to Angkor Wat. Most tours in Cambodia involve a visit to this and other grand sacred sites like Bayon, Phnom Bakeng, and Phimeanakas are essential for those who would like to experience a true Cambodian adventure.
More than just Temples
Most people think that there is nothing to see in Cambodia but its temples, but that cannot be any further from the truth. Although the options are less tame than its regional neighbors, there are lots of things to do in Cambodia if you knew where to look.
The Cambodian people rely significantly on the waterways for economic and social purposes. This is something you can learn more about by visiting the Tonle Sap. Cambodia was also once a colony of France, and still maintains some of the best-preserved French colonial architecture on this side of the planet.
It might not seem like it initially, but trust that you will never find yourself wondering what to do in Cambodia. Immerse yourself in the unique Khmer culture and discover a different side of Southeast Asia.
