Background info

The temples of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and Banteay Srey, all located in Angkor Archaeological Park, are amongst the most photographed UNESCO World Heritage listed sites in the world. But there is more to Cambodia than Angkor.

Visit the beautiful Royal Palace in capital Phnom Penh and learn about the brutal Khmer Rouge era (1975-1979) by visiting the killing fields and the Tuol Sleng museum. And check out the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, Tonle Sap.

When you’re a beach lover, there are many white sandy beaches on the Gulf of Thailand and on the islands right of the coast here.

Cambodia is often overlooked as a family travel destination. Such a pity for a country that has so much to offer. You’ll leave Cambodia wanting more. The people are warm, the food is great and child friendly, the temples worth exploring and the (recent) history lessons harsh, but essential.
