Pitch Perfect on a Cambodia Vacation
First tick off some must-do’s, then kick back and change the pace of life on your Cambodia vacation. Start at the country’s biggest draw Angkor Wat. Spread over 400 acres the temple complex is Cambodia’s crown jewel. The grandeur of its size, the intricacy of its bas-relief sculptures, and the symbolism and architectural genius behind it cannot be overstated. Over a million visitors arrive here and in the nearby town of Siem Reap each year. As a result, the city is something of a boomtown catering to the crowds.
The wounds of the genocide perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s are an integral part of Cambodian history. Understand this country’s past by visiting the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and Choeung Ek Killing Fields, while in the bustling capital Phnom Penh. Later, visit the rich, ornate Royal Palace with its exquisite gardens. At dusk, join the local population at the river, where waterfront bars line the boardwalk and open-air exercises and dance lessons are often conducted.
Reconnect with life’s fundamentals by exploring places outside the main cities. Take a riverboat on the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers, travel to places like Kampot, famous for its pepper, or Battambang, with its crumbling colonial architecture. Spend time interacting with friendly locals. If you’re looking for an atypical itinerary, you’ve come to the right place.
