Cambodia is most famous for its sublime Angkor Wat temple complex, built by the Khmers as an earthly representation of Mount Meru, the home of the Hindu faith’s ancient gods. While the temples of Angkor may be the biggest draw, Cambodia has so much more, a tropical inland wilderness, a pristine stretch of southern coast, scattered with idyllic tropical islands and a lively up-and coming capital, Phnom Penh. This really is a place to visit if you are a history enthusiast or a solo traveller seeking adventure!
Angkor Wat is believed to be the world’s largest religious building, a huge temple complex that is also astonishingly detailed at close quarters. After marvelling at the temple, you can’t miss Cambodia’s southern coast, locked by teaming jungle it is a secluded paradise. Crystal clear waters and currently undeveloped swathes of white sand really are something of a beach lover’s holy grail.
Tonle Sap in Cambodia is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. The lake is a lifeblood to the country providing a large source of fishing and sustenance to almost half of the country’s crops. Many Cambodian’s live in elevated houses forming nearly 170 floating villages along the lake’s floodplains. Much like the Amazon, the Mekong and Tonle Sap waterways replace roads, it’s a water world existence and an eye-opening experience for curious travellers.
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
