    Cambodia: from Angkor Wat to Phnom PenhImposing vegetation and stone temples, a world full of contrasts, made of colorful foods, smiling Buddhist monks, pagodas and hermitages of exceptional charm

    After decades of war and isolation, Cambodia has once again become one of the most sought-after destinations in South-East Asia: ancient temples, deserted beaches, traditions, Story and and gentle cosmetics which leaves you breathless.

    Think about the magic of of Angkor, the site that contains the wonderful remains of the capitals of the Khmer Empire from the 9th to the 15th century. It has been included among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and includes the famous temple of Angkor Wat and in Angkor Thom the Bayon temple with its countless sculptural decorations.

    The charm of the capital is unmissable Phnom Penh, . The city stretches along the river bank Tonl茅 Knows (meaning Great Fresh Water River but more commonly translated as Great Lake), a tributary of the Mekong that runs through the entire Indochina peninsula. In Phnom Penh the long riverfront has a Parisian flavor seasoned with the exoticism of Buddhist Indochina made of unique colors and scents. The walk along the river, Sisowath Quay, offers dozens of guesthouses, hotels, restaurants, spas and caf茅s with air conditioning and river views. The major tourist attractions in Phnom Penh are the Royal Palace, Argento Pagoda, National Museum, Independence Monument, Friendship Monument between Cambodia and Vietnam, the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Wat phnom, a complex of temples, pagodas and gardens on a hillside overflowing with pilgrims, monks, street vendors and tourists, is located on a small 27-metre tree-lined hill.

    For a healthy dose of relaxation go to Sihanoukville, the most important coastal city. The white beaches and warm waters provide a fantastic tropical escape from the cities. This is the perfect place to relax, snorkel or dive, and slow down the pace.
