Explore Cambodia is Worthwhile !!!

Planning a holiday? And are you looking for a fresh and untouched travel destination? Then I think Cambodia is the place that you are looking for. Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation whose landscape spans low-lying plains, the Mekong Delta, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. Phnom Penh, its capital, is home to the art deco Central Market, glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum's historical and archaeological exhibits. This country is a perfect destination for every traveler.

They offer you breathtaking views of lush green lands, amazing beaches at the same time this country is rich in culture, religion, and history. Here we have a list of 5 places in Cambodia which you surely visit for your next holiday.


The largest spiritual building in the world and Cambodia's most popular tourist attraction, Angkor Wat draws over 2 million visitors annually. The site is a short tuk-tuk ride away from the city of Siem Reap (best taken in the dark just in time to catch the sunrise over the temple complex). Tourists looking to learn about the history and significance of particular aspects of the temple typically hire a guide for the day. Others prefer to get their daily exercise, roam around, and lose themselves in the nooks and crannies of the complex. Whichever way you go, you won't leave disappointed. Well, maybe just a little when the 'seasonal' scaffolding and green tarps prevent you from getting that picture-perfect sunrise photo of the temple's facade.


After checking out Angkor Wat, the tuk-tuk driver you've hired for the day will suggest you continue on to Ta Prohm, also known as the 'Tomb Raider Temple'. While not of Angkor Wat's scale, Ta Prohm is rather unique—you'll see moss-covered blocks, trees climbing over walls, and so many passageways, you won't know which direction you're headed. Make sure to snap a photo of the famous doorway engulfed in roots, or you'll be the odd person out.


A Cambodian temple dedicated to Shiva, Banteay Srei, meaning 'city of women', sits 16 miles north of the main complex at Angkor. The temple is miniature in scale and composed of red sandstone, which lends itself to elaborate carving. Indeed, decorative motifs can be found all over the temple walls. For those tourists with more than a day or two to visit temples, Banteay Srei is always on the to-see list. And it's more than worth it.


Sihanoukville's beaches are a main attraction for tourists in Cambodia—especially for backpackers looking to drink their body weight in alcohol. Travellers need to be wary of potential crime, but with 75-cent beers, cheap liquor, and people playing with fire at night beachside, Sihanoukville holds an undeniable allure for plenty of young backpackers. The experience is memorable. Or not, depending on how much you drink.
