Top Things To Do in Cambodia

1. Visit the Angkor Wat Temples

The Angkor Wat temples are a World Heritage site and are made up of an elaborate temple complex. It is considered a Hindu religious site and was the former capital of the ancient Khmer Empire. It is the most iconic site in Cambodia and a must-see for any traveller or backpacker.

2. Take a Cruise on the Mekong River

It is worthwhile taking a cruise along the Mekong River as you are able to see the beautiful country and landscape of both Thailand and Laos. We recommend taking a sunset cruise as this will ensure a picturesque and calming experience that should be savoured.

3. Ride an Elephant

No trip to Cambodia would be complete without a ride on an elephant! Many different rides are available, so why not take a whole day trekking through the Cambodian forest on an elephant? This is a unique experience you won’t forget… many rides include stops at stunning locations including waterfalls where you can help wash the elephant and keep your ride cool!
