There’s a magic about Cambodia that casts a spell on many who visit this charming yet confounding kingdom. Ascend to the realm of the gods at the mother of all temples, Angkor Wat is known as a spectacular fusion of symbolism, symmetry and spirituality of Cambodia.
Just as Angkor is more than its Wat, so too is Cambodia more than its temples. The chaotic yet charismatic capital of Phnom Penh is a hub of political intrigue, economic vitality and intellectual debate. All too often overlooked by hit-and-run tourists ticking off Angkor on a regional tour, the revitalized city of Siem Reap is finally earning plaudits in its own right thanks to a gorgeous riverside location, a cultural renaissance, and a dining and drinking scene to rival the best in the region.
Cambodia has its beaches that are as beautiful as those of Thailand without the tourist tide; wilds as remote as Laos but even less explored; cuisine as subtle as Vietnam but yet to be discovered; and temples that leave Burma and Indonesia in the shade. This is the heart of the Southeast Asia . Everything in the region offers packed (?) into one bite-sized country. If you were only planning to spend a week in Cambodia , it’s time to think again.
