Sights & Attractions


Angkor Wat

A top attraction in Cambodia that you must experience when you’re there on your Asia tour. The temple was built around the period between 802 and 1432. The temple is majestic in size and construction when you consider when it was built. The temple was the largest in the Middle Ages and was the headquarters of Khmer kings, who continued to add to the temple during their reign. The temple itself is the world’s largest religious site, and today only a small part of the temple remains.

Phnom Penh

The capital is well worth a visit as you won’t find restaurants or cafés in the same way elsewhere in the country. Abandoned during the Khmer Rouge, the city has now become a city of greatness again, and here you’ll discover a combination of historical buildings amongst the modern.




Here you’ll find red dirt roads and small villages. There are great opportunities for long walks and you can even spot vultures. You can hike to Virachey National Park, where you can see elephants, tigers and Malayan bears.

We’ve also selected 10 things we think you should do in Cambodia to ensure you have the best experiences on your Asia tour.

Green rice fields




The countryside around the city is dotted with rice fields and small villages. The city itself is not as vibrant as the capital, but the history of the city is inspiring enough that many backpackers choose to come here on their travels to Asia. This is also where you can experience Bamboo. A railway where the carriages are platforms made of wood and bamboo. The railway stretches from the east side of Battambang to a small village called O Srav.




Koh Rong Samloem

The island offers some fantastic sandy beaches and cozy little beach huts. Scuba diving and other water sports activities are available.

Kite boarder jumping in the ocean
Four dolphins swimming




The town has become popular with travelers due to the possibility of dolphin sightings. Safety measures have been put in place and the locals are doing a lot to protect the endangered dolphins. In the town of Kampi, north of Kratie, there are many different boat trips that you can take if you want to see dolphins.
