The portal to the incredible ruins of Angkor, Siem Reap has evolved into Cambodia’s trendy epicentre. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed ruins, the seat of the Khmer Kingdom, including sandstone temples, reservoirs and canals. Marvel at the world’s largest religious monument, Angkor Wat, almost a square mile in size, with interiors decorated with beautiful carvings. Angkor Thom is an inner royal city built at the end of the 12th-century and its famous temples make up just some of the ancient site’s breath-taking temples.
X marks the spot in Phnom Penh, a city that sits on the cross-shaped confluence of the Mekong, Bassac, and Tonle Sap rivers. Once called the Pearl of Asia, Cambodia’s capital glimmers with the echoes of its past including the surviving French colonial architecture, the spires of the Royal Palace and the flutter of monk’s robes. Markets exude fragrant scents and down every colourful street you can find alluring cafes and bustling bars.
Best time to visit
Luxury holidays to Cambodia offer something different all year round, with each season unveiling something new in every region. The wet season, from May to October, sees lush green paddy fields emerge under extraordinary skies and spectacular scenery that is made even better by the rain washing away the dusty haze. The dry season, from November to April, tends to be most popular with tourists, promising warm weather that is excellent for beach dwellers.
High on the bucket-list of many world travellers, experience the incredible sunrise at Angkor Wat. Rise early in the morning to meet with your private guide who will transfer you to the Angkor Temple Complex. Take your choice of the countless sunrise spots and get your camera ready. Watch as the sun appears over the temple, bleeding colour into the tranquil reflecting pools that surround it.
