Key Pointers for Memorable Cambodia Tours

By Andrew Mulvaney

When travelling to Southeast Asia, people are often lured towards the old world charm of Vietnam and the unforgettable hospitality of Thailand. Yet squeezed between these two countries is Cambodia, which is a truly breathtaking land that offers stunning attractions that shouldn't be missed. Whether you fancy visiting the string of museums in Phnom Penh or exploring the remnants of Angkor Wat, Cambodia tours promise truly exciting and memorable adventures.

The best way to explore Cambodia is through multi-day and multi-stop tours so you can best experience all the major attractions, with a local guide giving you a brief background and history of the place. Since English is a language spoken everywhere in this country, you will have a memorable and relaxing time exploring the exotic nooks and crannies of the country.

The Getting To and Around Cambodia
There are daily flights that arrive from any major destination around Asia to the capital Phenom Penh to set you on your Cambodia tours. In addition, there are also smaller airlines that operate and fly directly from Bangkok to Siem Reap. However, if you are on a budget, the cheapest mode of transportation to Cambodia is by bus both from Ho Chi Minh city and Bangkok. Getting around and exploring Cambodia is actually incredibly easy since you will find most locals friendly and accommodating to assist you whilst on your tour. There are also motorbikes and motor rickshaw available to take you around town and your particular destinations should you wish to strike out on your own at any point.

Hot Spots
You will find Phnom Penh pulsating with energy, being one of the most frenetic and chaotic capitals in Asia. However, the country's capital also showcases some of the most spectacular restaurants as well as offering daily tours to war museums and the famous Killing Fields. Another top destination is Siem Reap, which presents a great starting point for exploring the truly stunning ancient Angkor kingdom that features 100 jungle temples. Photos cannot justify the sheer majestic beauty of this site that is best experienced up close and personal. If you are looking forward to a refreshing getaway after seeing all the sights, you can head to Sihanoukville, which is situated in the southern regions of Cambodia and home to pristine beaches that easily rival some of Thailand's best.
