Cambodia is a beautiful and unique country within Southeast Asia. Its most famous icon is Angkor Wat, which is not a single site but rather a whole region filled with amazing ancient palaces, temples, moats and giant carved faces. Angkor Wat is inclusive of Angkor Thom, Bantae Srei, Ta Prohm (where giant tree roots wrap in and out of the ancient temple stones), Prea Vihear, and much, much more. The ancient ruins of this 9th-12th century Khmer empire truly deserve to be considered one of the Wonders of the World.
In addition to exploring the ancient sites of Angkor Wat, you may want to experience the wonders of modern day Cambodia. We can take you to quaint villages in the countryside, to Ton Le Sap (the Great Lake) that grows and shrinks each year between 2,500km2 and 12,500km2, and for a visit to the amazing Submerged Forests and Floating Villages. We offer an Indiana Jones style River Cruise that will take you past the Submerged Forest and Floating Villages to the Mekong River and onto Phnom Penh.
Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and is a mixture of many elements: from the grandeur of the King’s Palace (which combines French Architecture with Cambodian roofs), to the treasures of the National Museum (which houses many of the statues from Angkor Wat as well as a spectacular collection of small bronze Buddha statues), to the grim reminders of the slaughter of innocents by the Khmer Rouge present at the sites of the Killing Fields and the Genocide Museum.We offer tours to many areas in Cambodia that most companies do not, such as Angkor Borei (the older, unprotected Khmer Empire sites outside of Phnom Penh), the National Park at Kep, and the beautiful beach resort area of Sihanoukville. We can even take you camping out by the Mekong River where you can experience beautiful nature and wildlife including Fresh Water Dolphins! Furthermore, the country’s national costumes, dances, and theatre arts (including shadow puppetry) are quite spectacular to behold, adding to Cambodia’s status as a true land of wonder and beauty.
