Cambodia Overview

Cambodia Information

Tourism is one of the main industries in the Kingdom of Cambodia. Strong efforts have been made to promote the country as a unique destination, one that's rich in diversity and has a fascinating cultural heritage. Since the country’s new era of peace and political stability took over, everyone can now discover the deepest heart of the Kingdom, travelling in little known areas and understanding more about the Angkor civilization.

Cambodia's main draw is the Angkor temples, magnificent both in scale and beauty. But there is much more on offer than its famous cultural sites. Cambodia has beauty scattered into a thousand facets throughout the Kingdom and beyond the grandeur of the ancient capital. You can cruise down the Mekong and tributary rivers, go trekking in remote areas and relax on deserted beaches.
