The Kingdom of Cambodia is a land of intrigue and mystery. Located on the Indochina Peninsula, it is a land where tribal life mixes with modern urban life to create a culture experience that is completely unique.

It is also a country that faces numerous challenges, including environmental deforestation. Now is the time to see the wildlife sanctuaries and national parks in Cambodia before they become completely developed.

Despite those challenges, Cambodia has pockets of paradise that are breathtakingly beautiful. In the southwest, Sihanoukville offers incredible beaches that will help you relax the day away. If you want to go backpacking, then Battambang in the northwest offers a quiet opportunity to experience local life.

You’ll also find a number of stunning temples available to explore. Some are even still being used as monasteries or places of education to this day.

A visit to Cambodia often means shopping through the markets to find a local souvenir to bring home. From wood carving to ceramics to the Krama, the traditional Cambodian scarf, there are plenty of ways to commemorate your trip to this wonderful destination.

Since 1993, Cambodia has been working to upgrade the experience that visitors receive. Most of the main roads throughout the country are now paved, with many meeting international standards. Public transportation is available with regularity and guided tours are available to take you out to explore the remote treasures that are out there.

Cambodia is mysterious. Cambodia is beautiful. If you’re ready for the challenge, then it could provide you with one of life’s greatest adventures.
