“As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.”
Cambodia is one of the most fascinating (and less-touristy) destinations in Southeast Asia. Located in the southwestern part of the Indochina peninsula, Cambodia is bordered by Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and the Gulf of Thailand.
Fun Cambodia Attractions & City Sightseeing Tours
Angkor is one of Southeast Asia’s most important archaeological sites – its vast temple complex is home to the world-famous ancient Temple of Angkor Wat – one of Cambodia’s most visited tourist destinations. The ancient Buddhist walled city of Angkor Thom, located just north of Angkor Wat, is another popular attraction – it is houses Bayon Temple, famous for its massive stone-carved figures and faces.
Visitors are also drawn to Ta Prohm, one of Angkor’s largest ancient sites. The Buddhist temple ruins, surrounded by jungle, features stone carvings, towering trees and unique intertwining root formations. It was also the site of Angelina Joie’s 2001 movie “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.” Other popular attractions include: Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, Bayon Temple with its iconic stone carvings, Prasat Thom ((98-ft-tall 7-tiered temple pyramid in the jungle), Sihanoukville beach resort and fun outdoor markets.
Local Delicacies and Night Markets
Feeling hungry and adventurous… try the crispy deep-fried insects (crickets, tarantulas, beetles, grasshoppers) at the local Central Market on a fun Phnom Penh Tour – these tasty snacks are considered a delicacy to the locals. Visit Angkor Night Market – the outdoor market offers everything from silk paintings and intricate stone carvings to local delicacies and live entertainment.
