Landscapes of serene rice paddies, mysterious ancient temples, and lush forests await in the outskirts of Cambodia. Watch the sunrise over the famous city of Angkor Wat, explore winding city streets, try your hand at traditional Cambodian craft-making, and immerse yourself in the multi-faceted culture and history of this fascinating country. The bustling capital city, Phnom Penh, is home to the art deco Central Market, the glittering Royal Palace, and the National Museum’s renowned historical and archaeological exhibits. Cambodia also has a rich culture of arts and a deep, complex history which few have the opportunity to learn about and experience first-hand. This means that every moment here offers the chance to learn something new and make memories that will last a lifetime.
