Phnom Penh

With its wide array of markets and calm wide boulevards, Cambodia’s historic capital is a vibrant and exciting city. There is plenty to see as well, such as the magnificent Royal Palace, and the National Museum with its extensive collection of Khmer treasures, the Killing Fields just outside and the infamous Tuol Sleng genocide museum.

Sihanoukville

Sihanoukville (or Kompong Som as it is also known locally) sits in the centre of a small peninsula in the warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Fine near-white sand beaches line the shore. They are awash with thatch roofed beach bars and seafood shacks. Tropical summer-winds, fantastic surfing & sailing, diving & snorkelling, national park-tours by boat, motorbike or hiking, all are part of this special corner of Cambodia.

Siem Reap

Your gateway to the millennium-old temple ruins of the Khmer Empire of Angkor Wat is your main reason for coming to Siem Reap. The town itself has transformed in recent years into a bustling area with an eclectic array of restaurants, bars and nightclubs that rivals any college town along with a night market that keep going well past midnight. The surrounding areas have beautiful, natural scenery well worth a visit.

Key Facts

Currency

The USD is the de facto currency in Cambodia. ATMs dispense it and everyone accepts it. The Riel - the official Cambodian currency is a non-convertible currency and so best not to get stuck with any when you leave, you really won't need any more Riel than you will get in small change when using USD in transactions.

Electrics

230 V; Plugs A & C* (Some outlets are a combination of type A and C and can accept either type plug). We recommend getting a universal adapter and converter kit.

Visa requirements

Most visitors to Cambodia require a one-month tourist visa (US$30) and most nationalities receive a one-month visa on arrival at Phnom Penh and Siem Reap airports, and at land borders. One passport-sized photo is required and you will be fined if you don’t have one. Make sure you have $30 in cash for your arrival to avoid any hassle.

National Food & Drink

Samlor Kako, Khmer Sour Soup

Local Culture

As with the rest of Southeast Asia, the head is considered the highest and most spiritual part of a person's body. The feet are considered the dirtiest and least sacred. Be mindful of Cambodia's tough past by not bringing up sensitive subjects such as war, violence, or the Khmer Rouge

Times zones

Language

Khmer is the official language but English is widely spoken, particularly in the tourist areas.
