Cambodia is the new Thailand. Cambodia is not only known as the Kingdom of Wonder, it is the Kingdom of Wonder! In the past Thailand was the place to go for those seeking adventure and experience an inspiringly different culture. Cambodia is better than Thailand now, here’s why…

From the moment you set foot in Cambodia, you know you are somewhere special. The Khmer culture is rich with traditions that date back centuries.
