When you think of Cambodia, the first thing that will come to mind is Angkor Wat – the glorious remnants of the once mighty Khmer Empire. When you learn about Cambodia, you’ll hear about the genocide – a dark period marred by war and bloodshed. But, when you travel to Cambodia, you will see its kind, resilient and humble people, who, despite the tragedies endured, have never lost their spirit and infectious smile.
Experience the wonders of Angkor and have these moments captured by a professional photographer. Uncover impressive backdrops throughout the ancient ruins – whether it be famous sites or hidden gems, the local photographer will lead the way! Discover different scenes in the countryside and finish the day with sunset atop Phnom Krom Mountain, overlooking endless rice fields and Tonle Sap Lake.
Spend a day in Cambodia’s capital uncovering the nation’s history and culture through iconic sites and ancient traditions. Take a private cyclo tour along Phnom Penh’s ambient riverfront to the majestic Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and Wat Phnom. Delve into the ancient art of Khmer dance in an interactive workshop with professional dancers, then end the day with a magnificent dinner cruise along the river.
Capital City: Phnom Penh
Population: 16 million
Currency: Cambodia’s official currency is the riel (KHR). The US dollar is its secondary currency. ATMs dispense US dollars, and they are accepted everywhere, as long as they are newer bills in good condition. Small change will be returned in riel, as coins are not used. Prices may be quoted in either dollars or riel. Money can be changed at any bank. Be sure to have riel on hand when travelling to more rural regions, as the Cambodian riel is the primary currency used in the countryside.
