Group travel experience

Cambodia is very safe to travel. The people are amazing, & among the hardest working I have ever met. My friend and I did 2 days in Phnom Penh and 3 days in Siem Reap which houses Angkor Wat. Phnom Penh: Killing Fields is a must-see because of the history. The Royal Palace, & the riverside are gorgeous. The museum has dance performances in the evening. Lovely. Siem Reap: Get the 3-day pass, & you get to visit the fantastic temple complexes all around Angkor Wat too. Do: Try the Amok - the signature Cambodian dish, usually made with fresh fish. Have a lot of coconut water & palm juice. Hygienic, refreshing, hydrating. In general, the Khmer people are very hygiene conscious & mindful of western standards of cleanliness. Shop at Senteurs D’Angkor, for the most amazing candles/handmade soaps/high quality spices etc.
