  • 5 things you didn't know about Cambodia

    In addition to the well known tourist destinations such as the capital Phnom Penh and the archaeological site of Angkor Wat, a destination that is definitely worth a visit is the wonderful Tonle Sap Lake, famous for its floating villages.

Why visit Cambodia

Are you looking for a trip in close contact with nature, allowing you to learn more about different cultures as well? Then Cambodia, the gem of South East Asia, is the destination for you. With Phnom Penh as a capital city, it is lapped north and south by the Gulf of Siam and is mostly flat, with some peripheral plateaus. The vast flat expanse occupying most of the country was formed by Mekong river, while picturesque lake Tonle Sap is also interesting, being mainly covered by rice fields and hosting some evocative floating villages.

Cambodia is situated in the monsoonal area, but its climate is affected by the proximity to the Equator, making the rainy season rather longer. The wet season goes from May to October, while the dry one goes from November to February. The main feature of the landscape is the presence of great rice cultivations, besides tobacco and maize fields. The vegetation is lush and varied as in few other places in the world. The northern area hosts evergreen forests, while in the south west there are primary and teak forests. Mangroves are widespread along the coasts. Wildlife will surprise also, including elephants, leopards, tigers and wild oxen. In the waters of the Mekong, near the village of Kampi, it's possible to view the rare Irrawaddy dolphin. But the most unusual animal in Cambodia remains the kouprey, a sort of ox which was discovered in 1937 and later became the symbol of the country. Snakes are also quite common, with four particularly lethal species: the cobra, the king cobra, Russell viper and banded krait.
