Ravaged by the rule of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia is gradually recovering with a newly invigorated optimism. Tourism is a vital component in its struggle for stability; with the rich heritage of an empire that once encompassed parts of present-day Thailand, Vietnam and Laos, Cambodia has a dazzling array to offer.
The awe-inspiring temples of Angkor at Siem Reap, a charming city in itself, are only one of this Khmer kingdom’s many treasures. Explore the lesser-known, crowd-free temples tangled with roots and barely distinguishable from the encroaching jungle itself on our Small Group Journeys. Cambodia’s coast is also relatively undiscovered: enjoy exquisite seafood in rustic surrounds at the seaside town of Kep; unwind on the white beaches of Sihanoukville; explore the sites of quaint Kampot. Elsewhere venture into Cambodia's little-visited northeastern regions and while away the days at its emerging arts capital of Battambang.
