I thought my holiday would be good but I was unprepared for how brilliant I would feel by the end of the week evening standard
"Thank you all so very much for your energy, expertise and inspiration"
Cambodia is a relatively new destination for the discerning traveller looking for an original and authentic experience.
Cambodia has a rich and proud culture, a charming French-era capital (Phnom Peng) and wonderful natural scenery. The famous 12th century temples of Angkor (a UNESCO world heritage site) are an 'absolute must see' with Angkor Wat being the best preserved. For easy access, stay at the sublimely luxurious Amansara or the nearby and charmingly colonial Raffles Grand Angkor
Phnom Penh is a classic example of French colonialism and, remarkably, many original traces of colonial era architecture and culture can still be seen. And stayed in too! If you choose Raffles Hotel le Royal. Places to visit include the Royal Palace, the National Museum and the Silver Pagaoda. The mighty Mekong River, which dominates the landscape around the city, is an impressive sight and runs in to Tonlé Sap, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia where numerous fishermen ply their trade from their houses built on stilts.
The rural and coastal life of the rest of the country is an inspiration for any traveller. To experience Cambodia’s coastline and beaches, head to the charming fishing village of Kep, a relaxing weekend getaway for the wealthy living in Phnom Penh or to Song Saa, an extraordinary private island. Those on more of a budget will prefer Sokha Beach Resort
Weather and seasons
Cambodia is hot all year round and the best time to visit is during the dry season: November to April. It starts to get wetter in May and the wettest months are September and October. It is still possible to visit during this time as rain usually falls as short sharp storms. November is a fantastic month to visit Cambodia as it is very green after the rainy season and the lakes and rivers are full of water.
