Cambodia

Jungles, waterfalls and a plethora of historical monuments, contemporary Cambodia is the successor state to the Khmer empire that ruled much of what is now Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. A nation with a rather gory history, this country is a testament to its people’s unyielding spirit and unwavering optimism. Cambodia’s real treasures lie not in the cornucopia of temples, monuments thriving wildlife and beaches, but in its ever-smiling people. From the commercialized hub that Phnom Penh is to the coastal mountains of Cardamom with the magnificent Angkor in the north, there’s something for everyone here.

Things to do

Tatai Waterfalls - As the source originates in the Cardamom Mountains where human settlements are scarce, the water is very clear. The sound of the cascading waters will seem to be pleasantly complementing the serenity of the previous day.

Angkor Thom - The capital city of the Khmer Empire, Angkor Thom is the textbook definition of the term, 'fortress'. Surrounded by a formidable wall 8m high and further bordered by a 100m wide moat, the city was built to stand and thrash back foe after foe. Some of the temples inside the walls of this city are Bayon, Phimeanakas, Baphuon, Terrace of the Elephants, Terrace of the Leper King, Prah Palilay, Tep Pranam and Prasat Suor Prat.

Champey Academy of Arts - Visit the charitable Champey Academy of Arts, a marvellous non-profit endeavour started to teach the destitute community the traditional Cambodian arts for free. It also has the added benefit of preserving the culture and arts of traditional Cambodia.
