Land of the legendary Angkor Empire, Cambodia is a unique cultural wonder with endless opportunity. Descended from the ancient Khmer civilization, the people of this land are extremely friendly and treasure Cambodia’s mysterious past and rich cultural heritage. This country will fascinate you with her diversity – here you can enjoy the islands off Century Beach, voyage into the jungle to find ancient temples and behold holy sandstone ruins next to the winding roots of a banyan tree in one of the many natural parks.
Tonle Sap, meaning great lake, is located in the center of Cambodia and serves as a floating community for many residents along the coast, as well as a habitat for assorted freshwater fish and birdlife. Sit at one of the waterside cafés and enjoy delicious Khmer cuisine while taking in the breezy tunes of Cambodian folk music. The element of water is a strong symbol in Cambodian culture, for the country is blessed with plentiful showers, filling streams and providing flourishing vegetation throughout the land. Each year, the river reverses the flow and is marked by the annual Water Festival, a celebration of the currents enjoyed by all.
