Cambodia

Once home to the Khmer Empire a kingdom that flourished from the 9th to the 13th centuries and whose capital city of Angkor is thought to have been the largest pre-industrial urban center in the world.

Cambodia has become one of the world’s preeminent destinations for travel, and river cruising has made it that much more accessible. The scenery makes the trip worthwhile, explore ancient Angkor ruins and temples, see the graceful French architecture of Phnom Penh or just enjoy the beauty of the mystical Mekong River itself.

Crowned by over 50 towers, each with four colossal carved heads looking out in every direction, this is an extraordinary masterpiece of Khmer art. A smaller temple of Ta Prohm which has been left in its natural, unrestored state, with giant tropical trees bursting through the ruins, their roots entwined like vast tentacles across the moss-covered, weathered walls and roofs.
