Have you ever wanted to visit Cambodia - Kingdom of Wonder?

As one of the fastest growing tourism destinations in Southeast Asia, Cambodi's rich heritage, cultural and natural resources offer a full range of cultural and eco-tourism sites that are both dynamic and sustainable. Highlights include Phnom Penh, the Angkor Wat and the Mekong River Dolphins; just to name a few.

The Kingdom's capital is a dynamic city where visitors are in the mood for shopping, dining, sight-seeing and more. As Cambodia's hub for commerce, politics and tourism, Phnom Penh is also home to many important institutions and monuments such as Wat Phnom, the Royal Palace and the National Museum. The magnificent Angkor Wet, Heritage of Humanity and World Wonder is probably the most exotic tourist destination in the world and the renowned yet very rare.

The Mekong River, which runs through the country from north to south, is home to an incredible array of extraordinary sights to explore from waterfalls, river rapids, flooded rain forests, beautiful islands and, of course, the famous Irrawaddy (fresh water) dolphins. The Mekong can be experienced in a variety of adventurous ways including boat trips, cycling routes and kayaking to remote islands or day trips from the capital to visit The Silk islands to witness the silk weaving process and bask in the spectacular river views.

Through the energetic efforts of the Royal Government of Cambodia under the brilliant and wise leadership of Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HUN SEN, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Preah Vihear Temple has been listed and declared as a new World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This 9th- 12th century sacred temple, perched on Dangrek Mountain, was built during the reigns of King Yasovarman I and Soryavarman I & II and has become a new cultural and eco-tourism destination in Cambodia. Moreover, the recent election of Cambodia as a member of the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO, is a distinct honor to the people of Cambodia and that helps to promote the country's national prestige in the international arena.

Cambodia is also extremely proud to be a member of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club, awarded to the region in May 2011. Spread over the four provinces of Koh Kong, Preah Sihanouk, Kompot and Kep the 440 km of idyllic coastline, found in the SouthWest of the country, is an unspoiled natural wonder of warm, clear waters and beautiful, palm shaded pristine beaches. Full of exciting activities and vibrant nighlife, Preah Sihanouk is a favorite vacation spot for locals and foreigners alike, and the largely untouched islands that pepper the Preah Sihanouk coastline are the ideal getaway for anyone seeking a touch of adventure and the seclusion of a tropical paradise. The more tranquil coastal province of Kep provides a perfect mix of sun-soaked beaches, luxurious resorts and sumptuous seafood delights, including the mouthwateringly delicious, freshly caught crab that has become synonymous with the area. Koh Kong and Kampot are the perfect destinations for the nature lover Explore the enchenting lush mangrove forests of these abundant natural eco-systems, home to many exotic species such as shore birds, lizards, sea-turtles and other forms of wildlife.
