Whether it’s tropical beaches, pristine rainforests and ancient Khmer temples or vibrant cities and delicious street food, a hotel break in Cambodia truly has an adventure for everyone.
From the rugged mountains of the north to the idyllic beaches of the south, Cambodia offers spectacular natural beauty and the wonderful hospitality of its people to match. It is predominantly rural, and there a number of interesting accommodation and hotel options in Cambodia, from ecotourism in the tropical jungles of the Cardamom Mountains to Community-Based Tourism (CBT) projects, which allow guests to experience the everyday culture of their hosts in a sustainable and authentic environment. The country is still coming to terms with its recent tragic past, which visitors can learn about at historical sites of Khmer Rouge atrocities such as the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek and the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former prison. Cambodia also offers stunning examples of traditional Khmer culture, most famously the breathtaking Angkor Wat temple, which is the country’s most popular attraction and situated close to the bustling and colourful city of Siem Reap. Another fascinating destination for a hotel break in Cambodia is the capital Phnom Penh, once known as ‘the Pearl of Asia’, a vibrant, noisy and exciting metropolis with beautiful colonial architecture, great street food, hip cafés and excellent nightlife. On the coast, the modern port town of Sihanoukville is a laid-back favourite with tourists and locals alike, and offers tropical sandy beaches and a party atmosphere.
