About Sightseeing in Cambodia

Cambodia offers much for the sightseer and adventurer. From the famed Angkor Wat, the largest ancient temple in the world, to museums and galleries, there is something for everyone.

Angkor Wat
The number one reason to come to Cambodia – although not the only reason – the temple complex in Siem Reap houses a plethora of sites to explore. Apart from Angkor Wat, two other attractions are Bayon and Ta Prohm temples.

Cambodia’s second city, Battambang contains impressive colonial architecture and is an up-and-coming destination now used frequently by visitors as a base from which to view nearby temples and villages.

Kompong Luong
The floating town of Kompong Luong is home to thousands of residents on Tonlé Sap lake. It’s quite impressive to see homes, restaurants, schools and other town structures rising and falling with the tide. You’ll find the village 40kms north of Pursat.

Phnom Udong
Lying 40kms north of the capital, Phnom Udong was the capital of Cambodia from 1618 to 1866, and many of the ruins are in good shape including those of Ta San Mosque. There is also a memorial to the victims of the Khmer Rouge with bones of people buried in the 100 or so mass graves of the area.

Phsar Thom Thmei (Central Market)
A tourist attraction in its own right, the central market built during the French colonial era in 1937 is a strange yet impressive art deco structure that’s got a hint of Khmer lotus about it. In other words, it’s an artistic collaboration between French and Cambodian styles. Even if you don’t plan to buy anything get over here to take a look.

Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda
This is one of the top sights in Phnom Penh. Dating from the mid-1860s, the Royal Palace is quite opulent and on the same entry ticket is the Silver Pagoda housing a Buddha statue made mostly of gold and 10,000 diamonds.

Sihanoukville Beach
The beach at Sihanoukville is the only place where you can take part in water sports like scuba diving. It’s also a great base for exploring Ream National Park. There are several good beach areas and even a nearby waterfall where you can swim. Also in the vicinity is the resort town of Kampot.
