Angkor wat is a temple complex that holds the title of the world’s largest religious monument and served as the capital of the Khmer Empire from the 9th to the 14th centuries. It’s filled with historic treasures and is arguably one of the most significant archaeological sites in Southeast Asia.
Buddhist monks and adventure tourists most of whom are couples dominate this site as they try to understand the beliefs while capturing the sandstone sculptures. From a far, the temple emerges like a canopy due to it being encompassed by wetland rice paddies and dense jungles. Angkor Wat is unquestionably one of Cambodia’s must-see places.
Phnom Penh is the capital city of Cambodia and is a hub for both the Khmer empire’s architectures, sculptures as well as French colonialists. It’s a fine spot to get a grip of Cambodia’s nature as a whole; a country balanced between the old and the new. It sits on the junction of three rivers: the Mekong, the Bassac and the Tonle Sap rivers.
Phnom Penh is a vibrant bustling city that boasts many beautiful parks, walkable river fronts, the beautiful Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum Cambodia. Accommodation for couples ranges from simple budget guest houses to high end five-star hotels with excellent restaurants and vibrant night life.
KOH RONG ISLAND
Koh Rong is popularly known as monkey island or island paradise by many couples who frequent the island. It is relatively an undeveloped tropical island and is home to isolated beaches making it great for couples seeking some rest and relaxation.
Koh Rong is located near the coast of Sihanoukville and is the second largest island of Cambodia with 43 km of beaches, white sand, coral reefs and different species of fish. Staying on Koh Rong is extremely budget-friendly with a huge variety of accommodation, restaurants and bars.
Sihanoukville is a province of Cambodia which encompasses an array of sandy beaches. These white-sandy beaches provide tourists activities such as mountain biking, scuba diving, snorkeling or just strolling along the beach.
The town features ample hotels, restaurants and bars. Many of these beaches have grass-hut restaurants and bars that offer delicious culinary dishes and drinks.
Siem Reap is a resort town located in the north-western parts of Cambodia. Its close proximity to the Angkor Wat temple has turned the city into one of the world’s premier travel destinations. The influx of tourism has transformed this little city into a bustling area with an eclectic array of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The heart of Siem Reap’s tourist district is known as Old Market and is a culturally, historically diverse center.
TONLE SAP LAKE
This is the largest fresh water lake in southeast Asia located about 15 kilometers to the south of Siem Reap town. The most interesting thing to know is that the lake expands and shrinks dramatically with the seasons. When the year’s heavy rains begin in June, the flow of the Tonlé Sap lake changes directions and forms an enormous lake.
Tonlé Sap is home to many ethnic Vietnamese communities living in floating villages around the lake. The lake houses indigenous species of fresh water fishes, snakes, crocodiles, tortoises, turtles and others.
