Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Royal Palace with a Dark Cloud Over it

Oh the charm of visiting the quaint and inviting capital of Phnom Penh, it is something everyone must experience.  This city really does have it all and is too often overlooked in the travel itinerary for those trekking through Cambodia and its Kingdom of Wonder.  Phnom Penh is an up and coming capital that affords you all of the amenities that you would expect from a capital city but does so without stepping on your toes.  What we mean by that is that Phnom Penh is inviting and gentle since it is still such a small city.  You can still roam around to many a place by foot and can explore with a great amount of safety.  It is on the light side when it comes to hassle but definitely not lacking things to do.

Apsara Dancers are Elemental to the Culture of Cambodia! Seen at the Bayon Temple at the South Gate in Angkor Archeological Park.

Be surprised and blown away by the town of Siem Reap.  You might know it as a gateway to Angkor Wat but those that have traveled here know it as so much more.  Siem Reap is a town that is filled with character and is laid back and easy to navigate.  Offering much more than just the temples of the Angkor Archaeological Park, experience the culture that is available in Siem Reap.  Featuring one of the highest concentrations of NGO’s in the world, it is easy to find a place to give back and get to take a peak into the history that makes this beautiful country what it is today.  Though Siem Reap hosts a range of hotels including fine ones such as the Sofitel, it remains quiet and cozy at the same time and offers accommodations that will fit any budget.
