Honeymoon in Cambodia

With quiet beauty, castaway beaches and real human warmth, Cambodia is wonderful honeymoon territory. Explore jungle ruins steeped in ancient mystery, swim in volcanic craters, meet the inspiring local community and laze on tiny tropical islands. Not a traditional honeymoon destination, it’s packed with alternative romance, remote landscapes and huge spirit.

Catch a pastel-streaked sunrise at Angkor

Angkor is filled with crumbling beauty and ancient romance. Wander between temple ruins tucked away in the jungle, giant carved reliefs, feeling completely caught up in the epic mystery of it all. Standing on the edge of the lake as day breaks over Angkor Wat and the colours of the sky bounce off the water is something that is sure to give you goosebumps. It’s one heck of a way to celebrate a honeymoon.

Swim in forest waterfalls

Hidden in remote north eastern Cambodia, you’ll find a natural playground filled with volcanic crater lakes, friendly locals and waterfalls in sun-dappled clearings. Rarely visited by tourists, it’s a wonderful place to get away from it all and discover real, remote Cambodia. Making inroads into eco-tourism, you can plant trees at reforestation projects, trek through thick jungle and meet minority tribes in the hills. Filled with quiet beauty, it’s a brilliant choice for a honeymoon.

View towards the white sandy beach of Koh Rong island in Cambodia

Take a barefoot break

Cambodia’s beaches and islands are peaceful tropical pockets with sugary sands, clear waters and swaying palm trees. Kep is an irresistibly ramshackle village with stilted restaurants over the sea while Sihanoukville has a lively but laid back stretch of white sands. Koh Rong Samloem is a castaway paradise with a handful of resorts and a whole lot of rustic charm. Swing in a hammock, feast on seafood and sip on a cold beer as the sun goes down.

Floating markets on the Mekong River in Cambodia

Meander along the Mekong

Drift lazily along the Mekong River watching daily life unfold along the banks as you sail from Cambodia into Vietnam or Laos. On the way to Laos, you can try to spot near-extinct freshwater Irrawaddy dolphins and amble past French colonial buildings. Heading for Vietnam, you can visit the largest – and noisiest – floating market in South East Asia, explore the tiny villages of the Mekong Delta and get a feel for life along the swirling river.
