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. Their roots are firmly fixed in ancient Buddhist and Hindu customs that are evident throughout the Kingdom. The multitude of temples are a testament to this fact. Angkor Wat is definitive evidence of these ancient roots and is recognized as the world’s largest religious monument. The temples at Angkor are adorned with stone carvings from ancient times and are a magnificent site to see.
But it doesn’t end there. There is so much more to see and do. If you haven’t been to Southeast Asia before it will be super-food for the eyes and senses from the second you arrive. You’ll be amazed to see how many people manage to travel on a single scooter, a family of five all squeezed onto one bike is quite the norm here. Tuk tuks are in abundance and are the usual mode of transport for locals and tourists alike. They are also a wonderfully atmospheric way of getting around town without being confined to the inside of a cramped car or bus.
