Cambodia has so much more to offer than just the famous Temple, Angkor Wat. It is a unique country, blessed with golden untouched beaches, unspoilt forests, and beautiful old colonial cities like Phnom Penh, Battambang, Kampot, and Kep. Each city has its own individual charm, traditions, and a relaxing atmosphere. It is also the gentle, polite, and charming personality of the native Khmer people that helps make Cambodia such a memorable destination. The capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, has a population of 2 million, and is situated in the south eastern part of the country, at the meeting point of the Mekong River, the Bassac River, and the Tonle Sap River. While it was somewhat known for its tumultuous and sometimes violent past, it has retained an undeniable charm that enthrals visitors.
Cambodia is full of must see sites and attractions apart from its famous temples, including The Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, Independence Monument, National Museum, and Choeung EK Memorial. Siem Reap, is a small city located 250 km northwest of Phnom Penh and 15km north of Tonle Sap River, which is the largest river in South East Asia. It acts as the gateway to the famous and historic millennium-old temple ruins of the ancient Khmer Empire. Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Angkor Archaeological Park is home to dozens of temples in various states of preservation that have to be seen to be believed. The most famous temple complexes in Cambodia include the Bayon, Ta Phrom, Banteay Srei, Angkor Thom, and of course the legendary Angkor Wat.
