Ex­plore Cam­bo­dia and Viet­nam

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - SUITE LIFE PLAZA ATHENEE, PARIS -

CAM­BO­DIA is re­dis­cov­er­ing it­self as a premier tourist des­ti­na­tion.

Its cities bus­tle with re­newed en­ergy and life and the gen­tle Cam­bo­dian peo­ple are al­ways warm and wel­com­ing. While travel off-the-beaten-track in Cam­bo­dia might still be con­sid­ered chal­leng­ing by some, the main cities are eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble.

The cap­i­tal Ph­nom Penh stands at the con­flu­ence of the mighty Mekong, Bas­sac and Tonle Sap Rivers. Once one of the most charm­ing of French-built cities in In­dochina, it has been re­vived with side­walk cafes and river­front beau­ti­fi­ca­tion schemes. No visit to Ph­nom Penh is com­plete with­out a visit to the Royal Palace. Filled with mag­nif­i­cent halls, pago­das and pav­il­ions with their grace­fully up­turned chofahs it is a lovely ex­am­ple of Kh­mer ar­chi­tec­ture.

But the epit­ome of any trip to Cam­bo­dia is Angkor, one of the fore­most ar­chi­tec­tural won­ders of the world.
