We started our adventure in Phnom Penh and to miss out on this city when you’re in Cambodia would be such a pity. To call the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum the highlights of the city may sound like the wrong term but while it was hugely overwhelming and quite heart breaking it was an experience not to be missed and I would recommend it to an everyone. We got to meet two of the survivors which was a very special moment.
We travelled by road to Siem Reap and I have to say that it was an excellent way to see the stunning countryside. Cambodia has a lush green landscape, full of paddy fields and dotted with house on stilts, it’s quite idyllic!
Siem Reap, while inland, has a real holiday atmosphere and it certainly has a great selection of hotels, restaurants and bars. The markets were huge and had a fantastic selection of shopping at unbelievably good prices. The nightlife was great too!
The must do tour when in Siem Reap is the temples at Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It was absolutely stunning! Another highlight was Tonle Sap. It’s a collection on floating villages where people literally spend their lives on the water with floating schools, shops and churches, it was an unbelievable sight.
I have no doubt that this won’t be my only visit to Cambodia, I loved every minute. Please call me if you are thinking of traveling to Cambodia and I will be happy to give you plenty of hints and tips!
