The country with its strong and powerful history and amazing scenery
There’s a kind of magic about this charming, yet confounding kingdom that casts a spell on its visitors. Here, ancient and modern worlds collide to create an authentic adventure.
Angkor Wat is by far the ultimate expression of Khmer genius, an awe-inspiring temple that is stunning and known for its grand scale and its incredible detail. It is the largest temple in the world, the heart and soul of Cambodia and a source of fierce national pride.
Top two reasons to visit Angkor Wat
A historic dive
The country’s strong history makes it necessary to visit one of the many museums. They remind us of the terrible times during the Red Khmer kingdom. We recommend a stop in Cambodia’s National Museum in the capital Phnom Penh.
Get to know the villages
Cambodia is characterized by contrasts between the rich and poor. In the big cities you find casinos where money is literally floating – and some even have their own money tree. A walk through the streets shows one nice car after the other. Since 2004, Cambodia has experienced significant economic growth and the standard of living has improved tremendously. However, despite the growth, one third of the population is still suffering from poverty. Six out of ten lacks access to clean water and the locals are heavily characterized by years of war and terror, and several is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. During the Red Khmer, an entire generation grew up as illiterates. Although the situation has improved considerably today, there is still a lack of schools and teachers.
In paradise we wander
Cambodia has many beautiful hidden pearls along the coast, where you get the feeling of almost walking in paradise. Why don’t you end a nice vacation with a romantic dinner watching the sunset? We recommend visiting Sihanoukville!
