Published On October 15, 2016 | By Davin Jasoon | Tour Tips

With so many interesting places to visit in Asia, it can be hard to decide where to visit and deciding what you want to experience on your holiday will help you to choose where you should go. Many people decide to head to Cambodia to see the sprawling Angkor Wat ruins and indeed, this is a must-see for anyone lucky enough to be heading to this part of the world on a holiday.

However, there is much more to Cambodia than just Angkor Wat and this is why it is such a great place to visit. The energetic cities, the beautiful untouched jungles, the underdeveloped coastlines and the historic religious sites that provide an insight into the Cambodian culture ensure that it is fast becoming a more popular place for holidaymakers. The best Cambodia tours will include a mixture of activities and this will allow you to experience different things from your holiday, whether you want to learn more about the culture or you want to relax on the empty beaches.

A Genuine Southeast Asian Experience …

Cambodia offers holidaymakers an opportunity to experience Southeast Asia with a difference. It isn’t as developed as its neighbour Thailand but it is well equipped to welcome visitors and its beauty is evident everywhere, from well-known places like Angkor Wat through to quieter parts such as Preah Vihear.

Some of the highlights of a trip to Cambodia include:

  • Trips around the rice paddies and sugar palm plantations
  • Trekking through the local rainforests
  • Experiencing the lively cities, such as Siem Reap and Phnom Penh
  • Exploring the small villages in the Cardamom Mountains
  • Temple tours
  • Time relaxing on the beaches

While Cambodia’s signature attraction is Angkor Wat and this is certainly an attraction that everyone should see while in Cambodia, there are plenty of other things to enjoy as well.

Fun Activities

Cambodia is a fantastic place to visit to enjoy doing any of the following activities:


  • Swimming
  • Diving and snorkelling
  • Temple touring
  • Mountain biking
  • Hiking and trekking
  • Quad biking
  • White water rafting
  • Zip lining

Top Tip: The weather in Cambodia is at its best from October to April but it does get very hot, so visitors need to make sure that they stay hydrated by drinking lots of water and staying out of the sun during the hottest part of the day.

Cambodia for Everyone

One of the reasons Cambodia is so popular is that it is a great place for everyone to visit. Whether you want to enjoy a romantic honeymoon with your loved one, head off on a solo adventure or you want to take the entire family on a once in a lifetime trip – Cambodia is now a safe, fun and unique place to visit that has something for all types of holidaymakers to enjoy.
