Cambodia is like its temples, a hidden treasure in the jungle that has been discovered and more and more travelers want to visit Cambodia. But what to see in Cambodia? What are the essential and popular places? Here is a list of the best places that Cambodia is famous for.
The capital Phnom Penh
Its streets full of tuk tuks and temples will make you want to hop on one and tour the city in search of monks and street food stalls. The French colonial-style houses and the old temples where every morning the monks go out to ask for alms are very striking.
Temples of Angkor
Attached to the city of Siem Reap and in the heart of the Cambodian jungle you will see how these temples, many in ruins, are still standing while the monkeys jump from tree to tree. It is undoubtedly the largest tourist destination in the country, Angkor Wat is the international symbol of the country, it is undoubtedly one of the first things to see in Cambodia.
This city is surrounded by countryside and is the second largest in the country, although it looks like a village and you will be able to see the Cambodian culture first hand. Travelers find temples, ruins, street food and even a bamboo train.
After visiting temples, walking through the jungle and touring cities, the body asks for rest. One of the best places is to come to this coastal city where its beaches are like those of Thailand but without being so crowded. Otres beach will be waiting for you to sunbathe or practice kayaking or windsurfing. From here you can go to our next destination that we recommend.
It is the new desert island with crystal clear water and white sand that you can enjoy at your leisure. You will feel like a castaway as the island is free of tourists with only a few hotels. Adventurers will be able to enjoy activities in the water such as snorkeling or hiking.
When you arrive in the city you will think that you are in another country since the city is still very marked by the French legacy. You will find its charm in the outskirts, if you are an adventurer and you like to discover new places you cannot miss the Bokor National Park, the abandoned station, the Kompong Trach caves and the Popokvil falls.
Sunrise at Angkor Wat
One of the most beautiful and unique views is to see how the first rays of the sun come out on the Angkor Wat complex and it gradually lights up. Without a doubt, it is something that everyone who has been will recommend and for which our clients are very happy.
Tuk tuk rides
This motorcycle pulling a trailer where you will sit is typical of the country, it is not easy to find it in other countries, so you will feel very special when doing an activity that you cannot do anywhere in the world. In addition, the good weather makes it refreshing and you can also better enjoy the view of the streets.
The night markets
They are usually organized next to the river of the city and in them you will find stalls of all kinds: from street food to handmade souvenirs that you will be able to take to your family and friends.
It is undoubtedly the most striking activity, those who dare can try a fried spider, or crickets in their sauce or perhaps worms with spices. Those who try it say that everything is delicious, would you dare to try it?
