EXPLORE CAMBODIA WITH A LUXURY CHARTER
Cambodia has endured a struggling economy and a tortuous recent history but has come out the other side as one of South East Asia's growing economies and a gem to visit on a luxury yacht charter. The southern coastline and islands are complete with white sand beaches, reefs and in the water that glow blue at night while ancient sites such as Angkor Wat and Koh Ker have attracted visitors for centuries.
AN UNLIKELY TROPICAL PARADISE
Look beyond Thailand and Bali and Cambodia has beaches and islands that can rival anywhere in the world. The resort towns of Kep and Song Saa offer the relaxed life without the tourists. For those who fancy their yacht charter in Cambodia to be a bit livelier then ask your captain to make a course for Sihanoukville and the island of Koh Rong. Here you'll find a heady mix of vibrant nightlife, cosmopolitan restaurants and stunning beaches.
ENCHANTING TEMPLES & LUXURY ACCOMMODATION
The symbol of Cambodia, the 12th Century temple complex of Angkor Wat at Siem Reap is like stepping back in time. You could easily spend days exploring these majestic temples, some of which have been reclaimed by the forest… Employ a guide and take a couple of days and you can see everything, including the temples the tourists don't get to.
Nearby Siem Reap offers luxury resorts, fashionable restaurants and a number of world class galleries. Some of the world-class hotels included Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, Amansara and Sarai Resort & Spa.
PHNOM PENH: CAMBODIA'S COLOURFUL CAPITAL
Once famous as the French colonial capital, Phnom Penh has a chequered and sometimes difficult past. Sites such as Tuol Sleng Prison and Choeung Ek, the 'Killing Fields' have to be seen to be believed and paint a picture of Cambodia's troubled history.
However, Phnom Penh is a city that looks to the future. Walking through the city shows an eclectic mix of high end hotels, boutique restaurants and world famous shopping outlets. Visit the Reyum Institute of Arts & Culture or the jGallery to see some of the exciting and contemporary art coming out of Cambodia.
