Slowly gaining popularity among travelers to the region, the remnants of the mighty Khmer Empire seen from the fabled temples of Angkor and the monuments unmatched in scale and grandeur in Southeast Asia make Cambodia an interesting place to visit less the depressing history. The 2 million tourists that visit Cambodia every year is clear proof that this once Khmer- ravaged country is finally moving away from its depressing history. Where one can ascend to the realm of the gods in Angkor Wat and descend into the inferno of the Khmer Rouge at Tuol Sleng, Cambodia is the perfect place for the adventurous visitors. One can marvel at the stone sanctuaries Prasat Preah Vihear along with the breathtaking views of the mountain temple. Guests can explore the jungles, mangroves, waterfalls, islands and beaches from the Koh Kong Conservation Corridor of the southern Cardamon Mountains. The ruins are amazing but the stories of god-kings and lost civilizations, ancient mythology and fascinating folklore are awe-inspiring.
Cambodia’s culinary offerings run a mix of spicy Khmer dishes, Indian, Asian, French, Thai, Mexican and Western flavors with restaurants and dining options serving delectable concoctions from different culinary cultures. Shopping in Cambodia will bring you to the designer dress shop Samatoa, to the lively night market of Angkor Night Market where handicrafts, souvenirs and silks are at great bargains.
