Phnom Penh is the graceful capital of Cambodia, once known as the pearl of Asia. The attractive promenade along the river is an inviting place for an afternoon stroll. Let the sounds of temple music, passing monks and flying street vendors take you back in time. You will feel this just as quickly as the modern changes- a city of diversity.
In 1860, the French discovered the remains of several temples and other stone buildings in the jungle near the city of Siam Reap. What they did not know at the time was that they had just discovered the ruins of what is believed to be the largest pre-industrial city in the world. The ruins of Angkor are the highlight for many tourists on their trip to Cambodia, and rightly so.
Battambang is still one of those places that is a little off the beaten track and worth a visit during your trip to Cambodia. The region exudes a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, certainly also influenced by the small local artist scene in the city of Battambang. Pagodas, temples, and stupas are waiting to be discovered, caves, floating villages, and sacred mountains to be explored.
