Quirky accommodation and places to stay in Cambodia
Holiday accommodation in Cambodia – not a traditional holiday destination, but conversely, you wll find that there really is something for everyone to do. Its beaches are renowned for being as beautiful as those in Thailand (but far less touristy). There are forests and wild places as remote as those in other parts of Southeast Asia, but even less explored. And to top it all, the Cambodian cuisine is divine. Of course, it is also remembered as a place with a gruesome history and three decades of war – descend into Tuol Sleng and you will be faced with the gritty reality of the Khmer Rouge and its killing machine. And of course, no trip out from your holiday accommodation in Cambodia would be complete without a trip to Angkor Wat. This spectacular temple is the 8th wonder of the world, and with good reason.
Head for the north of Cambodia and you will really be able to explore. Not just the more famous sight of Angkor Wat, but a chance to spend time in local communities, get to know the places and the people. Finding a hotel or villa in Cambodia’s north will give you a chance to explore all this and more.
No holiday in Cambodia would be complete without an exploration of the southern regions – whether you want to snorkel and lie on a beach or discover colonial buildings and experience riverside life, this is the place.
More about your Cambodia holiday..
Aside from the famous sites, the rest of the country has masses to offer the visitor. Whether you want to take an elephant ride through the jungle, trek in National Parks, hunt for the last remaining Mekong river dolphins or find yourself a beach on which to relax and watch the world go by...If you’re into cycling, you can cycle the length of the Mekong river which meanders through villages, from north to south. You might have several different needs for your holiday accommodation in Cambodia – maybe a hotel in Phnom Penh, and a rural guesthouse in the North. The south coast of Cambodia is fringed with tropical islands. Not only are there barely any hotels, but there are barely any beach huts! Here you can understand the real meaning of a ‘deserted beach’. If you’re looking for holiday accommodation in Cambodia with a bit of character, then it won’t be hard to find; it’s what Cambodia is all about.
