The kingdom of Cambodia is one of the fastest growing vacation destinations in the world. It's a country that never ceases to amaze visitors with its incredible archeological sites, fascinating history, and an ancient culture.
Laura will start you off in the province of Siem Reap where you're close to everything adventurous: day trips to temples and ruins, shopping, and the best hotels.
Then, itís off to the best temples in Angkor Thom, the largest temple complex in the world. The most famous is Angkor Wat, a temple filled with unique symbolism. You'll also visit the Bayon Temple, which once served as the capital of the Khmer empire. One of the best ways to enter this temple is by climbing aboard the back of an elephant and following your guide on a short trek through the jungle.
After exploring the ruins, you can visit the people who live here. "Artisans d'Angkor" is a company that provides sculpting and crafting opportunities to young artisans in rural villages all around Siem Reap. After you've seen this workshop, you won't be able to resist buying something from their magnificent gallery!
The antiquity, the call of the jungle, and the perfectly preserved artwork make for an experience of a life time in Cambodia!
