Tourism in Cambodia is in its infancy although the country has very interesting tourist attractions are recognized throughout the world. Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital, was considered the most pleasant town of French Indochina. Located at the confluence of the Mekong, it has everything it takes to please. The Royal Palace in Phnom Penh is home to the famous Silver Pagoda, whose 5 000 tiles are all made of silver and weighing a kilogram each. It also houses the “Emerald Buddha” and a gold Buddha weighing about 90 pounds. The National Museum is also worth visiting. The architecture of some buildings remind everyone that Cambodia during its history, was indeed a French colony. Those who have the courage can go see the graves of Choeung Ek-south-west where a pyramid formed by 8000 skulls was erected. But visit Cambodia is not just to see Phnom Penh. The visit of the architectural wonders of Angkor is the highlight of a trip to Cambodia. Located near the town of Siem Reap, the tourist site contains dozens of temples with ornaments your breath away. You need at least five days to see the entire site.
Sports and tourism practice are still quite limited. The town of Sihanoukville has the most beautiful beach in Cambodia, beach Ochatial. Proponents of relaxation will find their pleasure. You can even do scuba diving. A hike in the Ratanakiri will lead you along the volcanic lake Ya Lom.
