Things to Do in Cambodia

Cambodia impresses its visitors with the world heritage Angkor Wat and Khmer culture, yet Cambodia is more than that. Take some other activities, or if you come during some festival time, you may experience a real and live Cambodia tour that is out of your imagination and will be engraved in your memory.

Balloon over Angkor

Have a bird’s view of Angkor and its historical landmarks by floating like the clouds to admire the majesty of Angkor Wat below. Enjoying the feeling of standing upon the spectacular scenery with your eyes and mind broadened.

From the vantage point of balloon, let us gaze out over the city of Siem Reap, and soar into the skies and admire the picturesque Cambodian countryside with its rice fields and villages, the beautiful overlook of Angkor wonders.

Bamboo Train

Certainly it is a unique experience. Try essentially a wooden plank on wheels. Perhaps not the safest method of transport, but it still is an intriguing way to see some of surroundings of Battambang. 

It’s amazing to see how many people, animals and products can fit on one of these things. You can hire a private one or share one train with locals to get the real experience. It is a kind of DIY full of practice and delight that you should not miss it.

Boat Trip on Tonle Sap Lake

Taking a boat across Lake Tonle Sap is a memorable in Cambodia Travel. Tonle Sap Lake is the largest freshwater lake in the Southeast Asia, intersecting Mekong River at Phnom Penh, which becomes a hot destination in the Indochina tour. Regarded as “Lake of Life” by Cambodian, it plugs into the heartland of this country like an immense green jade with unbelievable variety of ecosystem, providing solid protection for the development and prosperity of the Khmer. 

When boating on the lake, you will appreciate the picturesque landscapes that directly affect you with how it cultivated a country. 
Appreciation of Sunset at Phnom Bakheng

The bird’s-eye view of expansive West Baray and Angkor Wat on the top of Bakheng Mountain, especially the magnificent scene of sunset at Phnom Bakheng, is a wonder in the world, which nowadays becomes a popular tourist spot for the much bigger temple Angkor Wat. 

It recalls Cambodian lost civilization that shocks tourists a lot. The beauty of sunset upon the mountain will never fade away from your memory of Cambodia tour.

Water Festival Celebration

As the most significant traditional festival of Cambodia, Water festival, generally held in October or November, marks the end of rainy season and the beginning of fishing. It is also regarded as thanksgiving to Mekong River for providing Cambodia with fertile land and abundant fish. 

All people get 3 days free to flock to the banks of Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers to celebrate the festival. The cities are well-decorated, and the classic activities include boat racing, floating water lanterns and moon of worship as well as fireworks that highlight the whole festival.
