Located about 50km from Siem Reap, Kompong Kleang sits on the northern shore of the vast “inland sea” known as Tonle Sap Lake. It is the largest permanent village on the lake. Each year the fishing community undergoes dramatic and continual changes due to the seasonal flooding caused by the reverse flow of the Tonle Sap River.
Cambodia’s capital sits at the confluence of the Mekong, Bassac and Tonle Sap rivers. Considered one of the loveliest French-built colonial cities of Indochina, it was founded as a small monastery in 1372 by a rich Khmer woman named Penh who found four Buddha statues in a tree trunk on the banks of the Mekong. Wat Phnom marks the legendary founding place of Phnom Penh.
A few kilometres north of Siem Reap stands one of the world’s most impressive temple complexes, Angkor Wat. In fact, Angkor graces a large area covering several square kilometres of ancient temples. The name means “city or capital”, “wat” meaning “temple”. The main temple of Angkor is one of numerous within the area, but it is the largest and most popular of these architectural wonders. It is estimated that the temples took 30 years to construct by more than 17000 workers.
Located on the Gulf of Thailand, 232 kilometres southwest of Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville – also known as Kampong Som – is perhaps Cambodia’s most popular seaside resort and the major coastal port of the region. The sandy unspoilt beaches, laid back atmosphere, range of recreational activities and excellent seafood all amount to a memorable holiday.
