No Bespoke Holidays to Cambodia is complete without visiting the UNESCO temples of Angkor. For the best light and fewer crowds, get there at dawn. Close to Angkor, the city of Siem Reap should not be overlooked. The pretty river and excellent restaurants make it well worth a day or 2. Cambodia has some great beaches and diving the ever-developing city of Sihanoukville makes an excellent base.
Cambodia cannot help but capture your sense of adventure. It has a dark political history, wild tropical jungles, castaway beaches and some of the world’s most revered ancient sights. Rediscovered in the late 19th-Century and now a UNESCO world heritage site, the ancient temple complex of Angkor is an awe-inspiring sight or in the Preah Vihear Province the Ancient Temple of Preah Vihear dedicated to Shiva dating back to the 11th century. The Temple zone of Sambor Prei Kuk in the Kompong Thom Province is earlier still than Angkor and located on the eastern banks of the Tonle Sap Lake.
Phnom Penh the capital of Cambodia, is a beautiful French-influenced city on the banks of the Mekong and Tonle Sap Rivers. Taking a walk along the riverfront, with its restaurants and bars, you’ll have a great opportunity for seeing the sights including the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the national Museum which displays artifacts from around the country.
At the heart of the city you will find the massive Art Deco Central Market.
