Cambodia HOLIDAYS

Go on holidays in  Cambodia to experience a slice of intoxicating history, meet the incredibly friendly Khmer people and take-in the country’s breathtaking natural beauty. Cambodia feels like a bit of a hidden gem in Southeast Asia , with the landscape spans low-lying plains, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline.

 Cambodia is largely a land of plains and great rivers and lies amid important overland and river trade routes linking China to India and Southeast Asia. The influences of many Asian cultures, alongside those of France and the United States, can be seen in the capital, Phnom Penh, one of a handful of urban centres in the largely rural country. Once known as the 'Paris of the East' Phnom Penh was built at the confluence of the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Bassac rivers. While the kingdom’s tumultuous past, which includes being a prominent part of France’s colonial empire, continues to exert a strong influence on present-day Phnom Penh, the city is moving on. On its wide streets, people smile and chat with an ease and friendliness that’s all too rare in big cities.
 Considered  as the gateway to the Angkor temple complex, Siem Reap has evolved into a modern, fun and very visitor-friendly city. Tourism has exploded in Siem Reap and there are a host of lovely and affordable resorts and boutiques here. The town is a hive of activity, with attractions running the gamut from contemporary galleries to edgy boutiques and slick eateries. Stroll along the leafy riverbank, enjoy a leisurely brunch in the old French Quarter and revel in the hubbub of Pub Street after dark. One of the best parts of any Siem Reap stay is relaxing poolside to beat the midday heat.
With  a glorious jumble of ancient temples, tangerine sunsets, colonial structures, glittering rice fields, little-travelled islands and beaches with long stretches of powder-white sand,  Cambodia is  a place you won’t want to miss.

SELECT YOUR TIME FOR HOLIDAYS IN CAMBODIA

cambodia weather

Cambodia’s is a country sandwiched in between Thailand, Laos and Vietnam with a 443 kilometre stretch of coastline in the south. The climate is tropical and due to most of the country being at a relatively consistent altitude and latitude there is not much of variation in weather patterns throughout the country. With a total land area of 181,035 kilometres squared it is the smallest country on mainland Southeast Asia. Cambodia can be considered bowl-shaped, the bottom of this bowl accounts for about 75% of the country’s interior which includes the Tonle Sap basin, the lower Mekong River flood plains and the Bassac River plain. These waters provide for the wetlands which are vast and centrally located and the annual flooding of the Mekong, which runs the length of the country, makes this highly fertile area good for agriculture. Surrounding these central lowlands are the walls of the bowl, mountain ranges to the north, east, south and south-west of the country rise up, but not to any great dizzy heights, with the highest peak of Phnom Aural reaching 1,820 metres. There are two distinct seasons, wet and dry, the wet season runs from May to October and the dry season from October to April. Let’s look a little closer at the differences between the two seasons.
