    Captivating Cambodia

    History, culture, and pride in Phnom Penh and Angkor Wat

    Highlights

    Angkor Wat  •  Mekong  •  markets

    Place Cambodia vividly in a context of ancient grand kingdoms and recent human tragedy. The stunning ruins of Siem Reap, including Angkor Wat – one of the ancient wonders of the world – are  the backdrop to a civilization that is still healing from events of the recent past.  Captivating Cambodia reveals and explains the most significant aspects of Cambodia’s ancient and contemporary history. Beginning in Phnom Penh, visit the small monastery around which the town was built some six centuries ago, and then visit Security Prison 21, where the Khmer Rouge tortured prisoners a mere 30 years ago. Spend a day observing local life on Mekong Island before heading to Siem Reap for the heart of your adventure. No trip to Cambodia would be complete without spending a good amount of time at Angkor Wat. On this trip, you will stay long enough to explore beyond the key sites which concentrate most of the area's tourism.  Built in the 12th century, the city of temples still stands as a majestic reminder of a thriving civilization long past. Marvel at the intricate masonry that decorates nearly every surface of the entire massive complexes, and try to imagine what the scene must have looked like nearly a thousand years ago. Explore some of the other remote sites of Siem Reap before an excursion down the Tonle Sap River to Tonle Sap Lake. Located in the heart of the country, Tonle Sap Lake is a fitting place to end your Cambodian adventure. Cambodia is a small country with a big heart. The longer you stay, the more you will admire the people and their society.
