In this post we going to look at some of the exciting Cambodian destinations on the Wendy Wu itinerary.
The history of the killing fields is well known around the world and as gruesome a chapter as it was, the location still draws plenty of interest. In learning from history we can take steps not to repeat ourselves. The Tuol Sleng museum is a popular attraction connected to it. Colonial architecture is fascinating here. In the capital of Phnom Penh youll find colonial villas sitting alongside traditional style buildings on the boulevards and the Royal Palace. Old and new coexist happily here. Saffron robed monks and townspeople all enjoy the cafe culture and world-class food available here. Other excellent examples of the colonial architecture can be seen in Battambang, near Kampot, where you’ll get to visit a traditional pepper farm. Possibly most exciting of all is the time you get to spend exploring a local home in Wat Kor village. Here you’ll find the bucolic scene of rice cultivation, river fishing and the age old art of shading yourself in the sun during the hottest part of the day in the many hammocks tied up all around.
Temples and attractions
There are so many interesting temples in Cambodia to discover, it’s difficult to know where to start. Luckily our guide will be on hand to explain what you’re seeing and the historical significance of it. Obviously the Royal Palace, the home of the King, with its ornate gilding in the capital is a good place to start, as is the silver pagoda next door. It’s also worth mentioning that a trip to the National museum in Phnom Penh is well worth it. You’ll also visit Ta Prohm, a temple in the jungle, Phnom Chisor, a temple perched high on the mountain top and the Phnom Chhngok, a Hindu cave temple.
Beaches and countryside
Holidaymakers have been visiting Cambodia for its beautiful beaches for many years and as soon as you see the coastline, youll understand why Sihanoukville is the main beach resort in Cambodia and why it’s all geared up for tourists. There is plenty to do in this vibrant city but if all you want to do is relax on the white sands, that’s fine too. If you get the opportunity, a ferry trip to Rabbit Island is a great experience. Watch the coral reef below the sparkling blue waters as you enjoy the breeze blowing across the deck. Kep beach town has a more traditional vibe. As you walk along the statue-dominated promenade youll see charming, crumbling walls and local crab vendors. Trying fresh seafood dishes is a must. One final attraction we heartily recommend and Wendy Wu will show you, is the Kiririom National Park. Flanked by the Cardomom mountains, you’ll not only walk-through fragrant pine forests, past waterfalls and discover incredible picnic spots, but as you enjoy your lunch, you might get to glimpse some of the wildlife that lives here. Deer, wild ox, gibbons, elephants and even tigers all live in the park and with your Wendy Wu representative at your side, you can watch them all in complete safety.
