Cambodia Holiday Pictures

August 29, 2010

After spending a couple of weeks in Cambodia and a few days in Singapore it now seems we are back to reality.

Officially we aren’t back until tomorrow but we just couldn’t wait to get into some of the photos from our trip!

We flew in to the charming tourist boom city of Siem Reap to start our holiday. Located only minutes from the magnificent Angkor Temples Siem Reap is a very popular holiday destination as most of what Cambodia is known for is located right there! Around this area we got to explore many of the temple ruins and had the opportunity to visit a floating village.

We then headed to the Capital city of Phnom Penh to see a few sites around their. The Cambodians sure love their monuments, palaces and temples!

Our final major destination in Cambodia was the Mondulkiri Province. An area in the north west of the country populated by hill tribes and elephants. The great thing about this place was that tourism was relatively new here. Electricity is something they have only recently acquired within the last seven or eight years and the bitumen road we travelled up the mountains to get their has only been built within the last couple of years.

Singapore was quite a spectacular city to finish our trip with, you can’t get much more of a contrast than between the two nations!!

We had an amazing time on our trip, and would thoroughly recommend it as a travel destination to anyone. Despite it’s extremely sad recent history I don’t think we’ve ever felt as safe walking down a street as we did there! The people there were very good to us, from our loyal Tuk Tuk driver Mr Li Ka to the villagers who helped push our moto up that dirt hill in the pouring rain we had a fantastic experience! 

Here are a few photos from our trip. Hope they captured some of what the Cambodia offers!
