Visas can also be applied for online. So that’s why come and find a ticket of cheap flight to Cambodia? This South East Asian country is so full of wonder, it should go right to the top of your bucket.
Angkor Wat - Unessco World Heritage site
It’s no wonder that Angkor Wat draws two million visitors every year. When the sun rises over Angkor Wat, it’s easy to understand why the citizens of the ancient city of Angkor considered their leaders to be gods. The rising sun reflects off the massive stone temple complex and the thick green jungle that surrounds it, creating awesome hues of purple and blue and an almost otherworldly glow.
Phnom Penh- The capital of Cambodia
It is a cosmopolitan city on the brink of becoming the Asia’s next bright destination. Phnom Penh is full of contrast - between tradition and modernity, poverty and wealth, locals and tourists. The lovely waterfront on the Mekong River, the historical monuments moving, the restaurant scene alive and growing, and the non-profit and non governmental organizations active. It’s still a busy, bustling city by any standard after the genocide under the Khmer Rouge that emptied out the city and brutally slaughtered millions echoes in the relative quiet.
Food is very cheap in Cambodia. Local street vendors will help you cost less than basic restaurant meals. Khmer food is humble and comforting with rice is a staple, served at pretty much every meal. The most famous Khmer dish is fish amok, which is white fish steamed in a banana leaf and topped with coconut cream. Beef and pork are commonly served with rice or noodles, typically with herbs and some kind of curry. Cambodia is also home to the famous Kampot Pepper, which comes from the south of the country and ends up in dishes like stir fried crab.
Everyone knows about Thailand’s beautiful beaches, but who wants to be so cramped on the sand that you can basically taste the sun tan lotion on the person next to you? Koh Rong Samloem can turn your attention to the less-traveled beaches of Cambodia.
