Cambodia

Cambodia is a land still shrouded in mystery and is one of Asia’s last undiscovered treasures.

 

After decades of civil war and genocide, the remnants of the Cambodia’s grim history still remain. Now, Cambodia is the brink of an explosion in tourists & development. And it’s easy to see why people are coming from across the planet to visit ‘The Kingdom of Wonder’. Vine-covered temples summon the budding archeologist, undiscovered islands beckon keen explorers and bustling cities are waiting to be conquered by foot. Cambodia is a haven for those seeking to satisfy that wanderlust.

The locals themselves are worth the trip. Despite their shocking history, they have prevailed with their infectious smiles & unbreakable spirit still intact. Arguably some of the nicest people on the planet, Khmer people love nothing more than to share their country with you and invite you into their homes.

So much of this mysterious country is unexplored, and that means you have the feeling of treading new ground. If you’re looking for an Adventure that’s big on discovery, Cambodia is the place for you.
