Welcome to Cambodia

Cambodia The Kingdom of Wonder – prepare to be amazed, inspired and charmed by all that awaits you in the home of the famous UNESCO Angkor Wat Temples.

Cambodia is located in mainland Southeast Asia between Thailand to the west and north and Vietnam to the east. It shares a land border with Laos in the northeast and has a sea coast on the Gulf of Thailand. The Dangrek Mountain range in the north and Cardamom Mountains in the southwest form natural boundaries. Situated in a spectacular location at the confluence of three waterways – the Mekong and Bassac rivers and Tonle Sap, the enormous lake that is so much a part of Cambodia.

Ancient temples, empty beaches, mighty rivers, remote forests …and (outside Angkor) only a handful of tourists. Cambodia has emerged from decades of war and isolation and is well and truly back on the map.

The successor-state of the mighty Khmer Empire, Cambodia boasts a rich culture, a weathered French-era capital and impressive natural scenery and the amazing warmth of the Cambodian people make it a rewarding and special place to visit.

APR - Khmer New year
Khmer New Year pronounced:  “Bun Choul Chhnam Khmer” in the Khmer language, is one of the most important traditional festivals in Cambodia.  This festival is celebrated in April and usually lasts for three days with the start falling on either the13th or 14th of the month. Each festival day is named differently, and each has its own individual meaning. The first day is called “Moha Sangkran”: this is the inauguration of the new angel who comes to take care of the earth. The second day is “Wanabot”: the day when people offer presents to elder relatives. The last day is called “Leung Sak”: this day starts the New Year circle.
MAY - Royal Ploughing Day

The Royal Ploughing Ceremony has been observed for many centuries at the initiative of an earlier Khmer king who had paid great attention to the farming conditions of his people. Pithi Chrat Pheah Neang Korl in May marks the beginning of the rainy season and the traditional beginning of the rice-growing season. The event has Hindu and Buddhist origins and is intended to honor farmers, bless the plants and herald a ceremonial start to the new growing season.

OCT - Phchum Ben

Phchum Ben is the most important festival in the Khmer religious calendar. Cambodians have faithfully observed the festival every year for as long as anyone can remember. Cambodians all over the country will travel to their home provinces for Pchum Ben, and there are services in many towns and villages. Most ceremonies involve processions around temples and crowds that wait outside with lit incense in hand as the monks perform rituals inside. Pchum Ben is a time to remember, venerate, and present food offerings to one’s deceased relatives, going back as far as seven generations.

NOV - Independence Day Cambodia

A celebration of full independence from France in 1953. Cambodians celebrate their independence every year with various parades, events, and fireworks displays all across the nation. The biggest celebrations take place in the capital city of Phnom Penh, but they are not at all limited to that vicinity.

NOV - Bon Om Touk (The Water Festival)

Bon Om Touk is a celebration of the end of the rainy season and for three straight days, the celebrations continue, with people from all over Cambodia thronging into Phnom Penh to take part in the festivities. Activities include music concerts, traditional dancing, and feasting on native foods. The regatta often includes as many as 400 racing boats, each decked out in bright colours and rowed by around 40 men, who are typically monks. Bon Om Touk is one of the most important celebrations for the Cambodian people, and millions of tourists have attended it and found an experience unlike any other.

Raffles Hotel D'Angkor

Location: Siem Reap

With the fresh development of new boutique hotels, fashionable French bistros and luxurious spas breathing new life into Siem Reap, it’s a comfort to see that Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor more than holds its own against the ‘new kids on the block’ ….. first opened in 1932 the legend lives on today (after careful restoration, of course). Rich in Cambodian history and full of original treasures this landmark gives a respectful nod to the values of yesteryear without compromising on the necessities of the 21st Century. 

 

121 rooms within 10 minutes drive of Angkor Wat, yet walking distance to delights of downtown Siem Reap just add to making this place one our favourites.

Surrounded by the greenery of the unique organic herb and vegetable garden, Palace Gate Hotel offers guests the chance to relax in a palatial oasis of traditional Angkorian luxury or…if you can pull yourself away from the delightful pool area, bustling Phnom Penh is just on your doorstep.

Royal Sands

Location: Koh Rong Island

Located just off the coast of Sihanoukville, Koh Rong is one of the most famous islands in Cambodia and on this little paradise is Royal Sands, offering an intimate glimpse of life as it was meant to be.

 

Jump on board the private ferry boat service from Sihanoukville to be transported to this five-star tropical oasis. We like it because of the unbeatable location, with an unspoiled white sand beach, stunning turquoise water, and beautifully appointed villas, plus the standard of food and unobtrusive yet impeccably attentive staff just nail it!

Cambodia is adopting a strategy of diversification to broaden its base in tourism from sightseeing to include MICE, sometimes called business tourism while extending the travel experience to other regions such as southern coastal resorts and the attractions of the Mekong River near the border with Laos.

Much of the MICE activity still takes place in the easily accessible regions of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, but if you are looking to work with a company that can provide a professional ‘get it done’ service in these locations and one that will work collaboratively with you on unique alternatives in less frequented areas of this stunning region…look no further! Value for money, the wow factor, and a truly memorable experience await you here!
