Cambodia Holidays 2019/20
Many flock to Cambodia for the prospect of witnessing its spectacular temples, timeless ruins, undisturbed beaches, and for experiencing its rich, cultural heritage. But not many people know that Cambodia has an incredible range of activities for visitors as it has scenic attractions to bewitch travellers. From cruising, indulging in watersports, swimming with elephants, riding through temples on bikes, to venturing on an unstoppable shopping spree, there’s a promising adventure awaiting every kind of traveller that visits this ancient kingdom.
Home to the beautiful ancient temples of Angkor Wat, Cambodia is a relatively untouched country, frozen in time and ripe for exploration. The Mekong River meanders lazily through the country and is one of the last homes for freshwater dolphins. Phnom Penh and Siem Reap have modernised with a cosmopolitan nightlife, French architecture and temples galore.
