Travel Inspiration: Cambodia: Southeast Asia’s Shy Soul
Cambodia, a country that for a generation kept out of the limelight, has recently emerged. Today, she proves herself to be a jewel in Southeast Asia’s crown. Like much of the country, the capital of Phnom Penh is in the midst of a reawakening, welcoming foreigners to come experience her wonders. Angkor Wat, perhaps the finest temple complex in the world, holds tight to history’s secrets.
Fly into Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital and most populous city. Founded in 1372, it has grown to become the nation’s economic and cultural center. Once known as the Pearl of Asia, Phnom Penh has been called one of the loveliest French-built cities in Indochina. There is much to do and see here. At the National Museum, view splendid Khmer art and sculpture. Visit the Royal Palace and its Silver Pagoda, the city’s most beloved shrine…
During our 8-day Cambodia travel itinerary, we explore Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Angkor, and Tonle Sap Lake, with optional guided extensions to Vietnam, Laos and Thailand.
