My first taste of Cambodia was around 10 years ago when I travelled across Asia to experience the mighty Angkor Wat. I hired a tuk tuk and driver and whizzed through the temples in the intense heat taking in the magnificent glory until being treated to a wonderful sunset behind the wat. Phnom Penh with its chequered history is just as interesting and although harrowing at times it is also inspiring how the country and people remain so positive and friendly. I was lucky enough to travel back to Cambodia last year, this time also taking in the Cardomon mountains and the stunning islands off the South coast, which rival Thailand’s beaches any day.
There are so many wonderful places in Asia and Cambodia is certainly one of them! As a destination it offers so much; beautiful beaches, a fascinating past and friendly local’s who want to share their vibrant culture with you. Angkor Wat in Siem Reap has always been the biggest draw to me, it is a an architectural masterpiece meets jungle!
