Cambodia Collection

Cambodia is a small country with a big history. Now a modest player on the world stage, this was once the seat of one of Asia’s most magnificent early civilizations, the mighty Khmer empire of Angkor, whose legendary temples continue to provide a touchstone of national identity – as well as attracting millions of visitors every year. Away from the temples, much of the country remains refreshingly untouristed and, in many places, largely unexplored.

Join the ride in Cambodia!

The Angkor Wat temple is the most magnificent and largest of all the monuments at Angkor. It name means “City Temple” and it is considered to be the largest religious structure in the world.

Angkor Wat is a sight to behold. It forms a nice picture backdrop that one treasures forever. Its beauty belongs more to the postcards than reality…and yet, the temple is as real as they come.

Angkor Wat, in its beauty and state of preservation, is unrivaled. Its mightiness and magnificence bespeak a pomp and a luxury surpassing that of a Pharaoh or a Shah Jahan, an impressiveness greater than that of the Pyramids, an artistic distinctiveness as fine as that of the Taj Mahal.

Koh Rong island - Cambodia by Nikon (22)

Koh Rong has neither roads nor cash machines and many businesses and guesthouses have electricity only after dark. But the island boasts 43 kilometers of beautiful beaches, and the number of breezy thatched bungalows and even purpose-built accommodation on the island is multiplying. The world has finally started to discover this undiscovered island paradise, and tourists who are willing to forgo five-star amenities to stay on Koh Rong are amply rewarded.

This used to be called Sok San Beach, after the nearby fishing village, but now that it’s being developed by foreigners the miles-long stretch of white sand is being called Long Beach. With its perfect white sand beaches, swaying palm trees, and clear blue-green waters, Koh Rong’s western side is a tropical paradise, albeit one with biting sandflies (that did not bite us btw).
