CAMBODIA

A former ancient kingdom reinventing itself as a hub of art and culture”

Cambodia is best known for its UNESCO World Heritage-inscribed Angkor Wat Complex in Siem Reap, the largest religious monument in the world and the seat of the 12th century Angkor Empire. Get lost in its crumbling, jungle-clad temples or climb up ancient structures to see the sun setting over the iconic spires of Angkor.

However, beyond the ancient temples of Siem Reap, the small country of Cambodia is filled with highlights including the floating villages of the Tonle Sap Lake, the faded colonial-era buildings of quiet Battambang and the premier beach town of Sihanoukville with its lightly developed islands offering an off-the-beaten path holiday away from the crowds. Once known as the ‘Pearl of the East’, the capital city of Phnom Penh is modernising at light speed, an intriguing mix of skyscrapers and chic boutiques promoting authentic design alongside historic heritage buildings recalling its glory days as the seat of a royal kingdom and a French protectorate.

Discover Cambodia, with its emerging art and performance scene and fascinating ancient and modern history, made all the more inviting by the gentle nature and genuine hospitality of the Cambodian people.
