Cambodia Heritage

Why Cambodia?

For a seriously off-the-beaten-path experience with world-class service, look no further than Cambodia, the “Kingdom of Wonders.” That name certainly isn’t unearned; from the world-renowned (and 8th Wonder of the World), Angkor Wat, to the bustling cities of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, your travelers will be in awe of the land of contrasts, its easy pace of life and constantly-smiling locals.

Cambodia Map

Capital: Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, is located in the center of the country, at the confluence of the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers – a strategic place chosen after the decline of Angkor as a capital. Phnom Penh has survived through the ages, and in fact developed throughout all periods that had an impact on Cambodia, whether positive or negative. During the French protectorate, many colonial buildings were erected, such as the National Library, the Central Market, the Royal Palace, and the National Museum. During the Khmer Rouge period, many buildings were deserted, and others, such as the S21 and the Killing Fields, were converted into Khmer Rouge quarters.

Caution: Travelers with a passport from Afghanistan, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, and Nigeria are not allowed to apply for a visa on arrival. Therefore, holders of these passports must apply for a Cambodian visa before arriving in the country.
