Temples, Mekong, Tragedy

Cambodia

Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation whose landscape spans the Mekong Delta, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. Phnom Penh, its capital, is home to the art deco Central Market, glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum’s historical and archaeological exhibits. In the country’s northwest is Angkor Wat, a stone temple complex that is the number 1 attraction in the country Visiting Cambodia is on top of a lot of travellers lists. See Cambodia with help from Wyld Family Travel’s detailed Cambodia travel guides.

Transport

The Cambodian public transport is operated mainly by private companies and locals with their own vehicles. There is a good bus network for travelling from one city to another. You will find tuk-tuks  are an easy and affordable way to travel around cities and towns

Accommodation

 It’s not difficult to find comfortable hotels at a reasonable cost in Cambodia. Hostels start at a few dollars a night while a comfortable family hotel will set you back from $25USD upwards in cities like Siem Reap, Battambang and Phnom Penh.

Food

You will find food in Cambodia very affordable. Typically local dishes will be either sweet, sour, salty or bitter in taste. A meal at a mid-priced restaurant should cost around $3USD while coffee will set you back $2.17USD and a loaf of bread $1.45USD

Money

The official currency of Cambodia is the Cambodian Riel (KHR). The USD is widely accepted and generally preferred. This often means you will get your change in both USD and riel. We suggest using a Wise card to cut down on high international withdrawal fees.
