Cambodia Travel Guide

Cambodia, officially known as the Kingdom of Cambodia, is a Southeast Asian nation bordered by Vietnam to the east, Laos to the north, Thailand to the northwest, and the Gulf of Thailand to the South.

Cambodia is filled with colonial heritage and rich Khymer culture. It is a land of impressive temples, beautiful countryside and untouched beaches. Cambodia's terrain consists mainly of low plains, with mountains to the southwest and north. Two dominant physical features of Cambodia are the Mekong river, which runs from north to south of the country, and the Tonlé Sap Lake.

Cambodia is Asia's fastest growing tourist destination, and has everything to offer for tourists and adventurers. The country's rich history is definitely it's biggest potential, after about 35 years of war, this beautiful country is finally re–emerging from difficult times, and its many wonders are now open to visitors. Cambodia appeals to both the serious and casual traveller, especially those who are charmed and perhaps bewildered by its mysteries. Visit Angkor Wat and Siem Reap for the magical remains of the Angkor Wat temple complex, the temples are the only proof of the rich Khmer culture that dominated South East Asia during centuries.

Cambodia's countryside is a beautiful patchwork of rice paddies dotted with small villages. National parks have been opened covering vast tracts of dense, unspoilt jungle – and the mighty Mekong River cuts the country in two. Tonlé Sap (Great Lake), a large freshwater lake is one of UNESCO's World Natural Heritage Sites because of its importance to the wildlife and ecology.

To the south of the county there are the beautiful beaches and warm emerald seas off the Gulf of Thailand. Nearby National parks have been set up to preserve the fragile ecology of the mangrove swamps.

Things to See and Do

Temple Ruins at Angkor – The main tourist attraction of Cambodia is the famous Angkor Wat temple complex in Siem Reap, built during the era of the Khmer empire. The temple ruins at Angkor, once the magnificent Empire was erected by Kings between the 9th and 13th centuries. The well preserved stone temple ruins date back about 1,000 years and cover an area of 200 sq. kilometers. The humanity and disaster of the nature have failed to compromise the awe of Angkor. The temples remain with an enigmatic grandeur, as a testimony to the Empire that symbolized the country at the present day. Visitors can easily spend several days exploring here, taking in the thousands of exquisite statues and bas relief carvings that adorn the walls of seemingly endless temple buildings and chedis.

Phnom Penh – The modern capital, once known as the 'Pearl of Asia' – wonderfully combines a bustling, commercial heart with Buddhist temples, majestic palaces, shady avenues and colonial style building. For a more recent and much sadder part of Cambodia's history, the country's capital Phnom Penh is a must visit. There you will find plenty of reminders of the brutal domination of the 'Khmer Rouge' and 'Pol Pot' who destabilised the country during the 70's. Although not for the faint–hearted, one attraction worth visiting is the Killing Field Museum (Tuol Sleng), a former school taken over in 1975 by the Khmer Rouge and converted into a torture chamber. The National Museum is less shocking, with an emphasis on Ancient Khmer history.

Climate

Like most of Southeast Asia, Cambodia's climate is hot and warm almost all year round. The climate is dominated by the annual monsoon cycle of rainy and dry seasons. The rainy season lasts from May to October, and the dry season from November to April. December to January are the coolest months, while the hottest period is in April. The average temperature is around 27.
