The temples of Angkor are without a doubt, one of the most captivating sights in Southeast Asia. From the awesome spires of Angkor Wat and the enchanting faces of Angkor Thom and the Bayon, to the mystery and wonder of some of the outerlying temples, you’re sure to be inspired. But we’ll show you another side of Cambodia that is just as compelling – palm-fringed beaches, picturesque rural landscapes and one of the most charming capital cities in Asia. Having emerged from decades of civil war and general unrest the Khmer people are incredibly welcoming and warm and will be a highlight of your stay.
This half-day trip can either be taken over a morning or an afternoon. It begins with a tour of the fascinating Khmer Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda. After that, you can visit the sobering and poignant Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a testament to Cambodia’s bloody past. Then you can shop ‘til you drop for just about anything in the busy, colorful stalls of the vast Central Market.
