The Kingdom of Cambodia is an independent country with a population of more than 7 million people. With a surface area of 181,035 sq. km and once a French colony, is the least known Indochinese country. Cambodia has a fabulas heritage, warm friendly people, an untamed wild landscape. The beautiful and extensive temple ruins at Angkor, now a UNESCO Heritage site, represent the glorious Khmer civilization and one of the most spectacular sites in Asia.
Rainforests, mountains, waterfalls and beaches, Cambodia has them all. The reconstructed capital of Pnom Penh is often the starting point for a tour of this war torn country, where you can visit the infamous killing fields. Explore the rural countryside by bicycle through pepper plantations and rice or take a boat trip on Tonle Sap Lake around an amazing floating village.

Cambodia remains refreshingly untouched by tourism and is ripe for discovery. You're bound to be moved by its tragic past, inspired by its spectacular beauty and captivated by its archaeological sites. The jewel in Cambodia's crown is undoubtedly the Angkor Temple Complex and iconic Angkor Wat, one of the great wonders of the world and the highlights of our tours to Cambodia.
The best time to visit Cambodia depends on the heat, rainfall and number of tourists. Most travelers visit Cambodia from November to March. If you prefer to dodge the crowds and go when prices are lower, the best time to visit Cambodia is from May to early October.
