Three Places you Never Want to Miss in Cambodia

Have you got a call to pack your bags for the Cambodia itinerary? You must be a passionate explorer who wants to mark every corner of the world under your feet. Then, here are the three must-visit places from Karambol Cambodia Itinerary.

In the Asian land of temples, historical events, and artistic evolution, fill your travel diary with worth visiting places where the warm Cambodian people will welcome you. Here are these.

Phnom Penh

Every Cambodian is mad after Phnom Penh. This dynamic city had gone through drastic times when the Khmer Rouge’s revenge left it to deteriorate. Here, in the sophisticated town of Phnom Penh, you’ve got to visit many places during your Cambodia itinerary.

The National Museum lets you thrill yourself with 14000 pieces of Khmer art, making it the biggest storehouse of Khmer art. Entering the museum, you will have no choice except to appreciate the masterpieces of Khmer art.

The Royal Palace is a phenomenal place to have an insight into traditional Cambodian artistry. The beautiful silver temple with the silver floor of 5,000 silver tiles and gardens is a perfect place to enjoy the grandeur of a kingly lifestyle.

Tuol Sleng Museum is the best place to stand and recall all the brutality of Khmer Rouge rule. The place has been a prison for over 20,000 people who had suffered the king’s rage in the 150-196 execution and torture centers.

Wat Phnom is the 46 meters high Buddhist temple to invoke the religious spirit in the entire city of Phnom Penh. The beautiful temple lets you soothe your soul with its divinity.

Choeung Ek should not fool you with the calmness that you find here. It’s more of a terror. The place has 129 massive graves as the resting place of Khmer Rouge’s victims and other renowned Cambodians.


Your Cambodia itinerary adventure can be incomplete to be a tourist and not enjoy sunbathing on the white sand beaches. So, Sihanoukville must be the next destination of every traveler to Cambodia. Here you can have a memorable time by visiting these places.

Bamboo Island is the home of only 30 people — what a peaceful palace! So, if you come with a modernity-sicken-heart, Bamboo Island is for you. The best thing you can do is to spend your time in meditation besides enjoying boat rides and golden sandy beaches or magical starry sky.

Sihanoukville Coastline can be irresistible to you with its five white-sand beaches. If you have ever been to Thailand, you must have missed the serenity there. Yet, unlike the neighboring beaches, you get a similar treasure of beauty but with no disturbance. So, you can have great fun at many watersports here through kite surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, scuba diving, and snorkeling.

Kbal Chhay Waterfalls can be your next destination here when it’s ready to shower all its blessings on you in the rainy season. With a14 meter drop, the typical tranquility of Cambodian life is present here.

Koh Rong

On a visit to Cambodia, to have an unforgettable experience, your next target can be Koh Rong. Here you can visit these attractions.

High Point Adventure Park in the natural Koh Rong jungle offers you an impeccable fun time through the zip-line canopy with complete safety. Your 400 meters course will comprise 25 platforms. One of the platforms is 25 meters high.

Preah Sihanouk beach, Koh Rong Blob Jump is not a mystery. It’s as simple as any blob jump can be. But what makes it exceptional is the result when you are thrown higher in the air and clear water splashes loudly to embrace you. This economical, fun deal will undoubtedly make you shout, “once more.”

Sok Sann waterfall is a deal of matchless nature scenery when you have been on a visit to many high waterfalls but not one that is from some tropical “jungle.” Yet, unlike the tropical climate, you’ll feel much more relaxed here.

Saracen Bay waterfall is a series of small waterfalls. Yet, your presence can only let you feel what you could miss on the planet on a visit to Cambodia but not being here.

Long Set Beach is like many other beaches in Cambodia. However, it’s the night that casts a spell with bioluminescent plankton. The result is, you’re left speechless for hours, or you might miss sleep at night — you get no choice except to gaze at nature’s mesmerizing show.
