Temple Town

Once a small village in northwest Cambodia, Siem Reap now serves as a gateway to the Angkor region's World Heritage-listed temple and other attractions.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm. Do your shopping at Artisans Angkor and Made in Cambodia Market. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Baphuon Temple, learn about all things military at War Museum Cambodia, take in the spiritual surroundings of Seng English Speaking Tuk Tuk & Car Driver, and delve into the distant past at Angkor Thom.

Charming City

On the confluence of two major rivers, Phnom Penh occupies a scenic location largely responsible for its nickname the "Charming City." On a trip to Phnom Penh you'll discover one of Asia's most dynamic cities, where the natives live much of their lives outdoors, on the streets, and in the bustling markets filled with scents of spicy foods.
Visit Choeung Ek Genocidal Center and Royal Palace for their historical value. Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and National Museum will appeal to museum buffs. There's lots more to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, browse the different shops at Central Mall, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Samai Distillery, and take in the exciting artwork at Din Art Gallery.
