Land of Wonders”

Cambodia is a land of ancient ruins imprinted with the Khmer empire’s collapse which is solemnity, and grandeur and occupies a significant position in the world’s wonders.
Coming to the Land of Smile and Kindness, travelers would relish a marvelous stopover for the series of hustle and bustle with fabled temples, unrivaled monuments, splendid architecture, and incredible collision between ancient and modern worlds, or pristine beaches with dazzling views.
First comes the gateway to the immense temples of Angkor, Siem Reap. No one misses a once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit this world’s largest religious monument recognized as the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, moving on a quirky bamboo train to taste the countryside vibe in laidback Battambang, this dreamland for culture-history lovers also captures the impressive beauty of colonial architecture.
Striding along to the alluring Phnom Penh, travelers would soak up the charms of blinding Royal Palace and Silver Pagodas; or discover the country’s dark aspects in museums and killing fields. Thus, the eastern part of the seaside city, Kampong Cham is a blended mix of contrasts; breath-taking deep forests, idyllic Mekong river, and spectacular mountains with panoramic views.
Beyond the country of temples and pagodas, Southwest Cambodia is characterized by intact beaches, hidden coves, and idyllic islands in Sihanoukville. Do not skip the amusing adventure activities and exotic living creatures there.

The domestic airport tax of 6 USD and the international airport tax of $25 are included in the air ticket price and do not need to be paid at the airport when checking in.

Domestic Airlines
Domestic flights enable you to travel quickly from one city to another one, but lately it seems airlines just keep appearing as quickly as they disappear.

National Currency
The RIEL: bills of: 100.000, 50.000, 20.000, 10.000, 5000, 2000, 1000, 500, 200, 100.
However, the US Dollar is commonly used throughout the whole country. If you have enough cash, you won’t have to go to any banks as you will be able to exchange small amounts of dollars into Riels at hotels, restaurants and markets. We recommend you to always have the equivalent of 10 dollars in Riel in order to pay for moto-taxis, tuk-tuks or for small purchases in markets. If you buy a low priced item in dollars, they will give some change in Riels. Local inhabitants from remote areas in the north or northeast of the country only accept Riels or small bills of dollars.
The only foreign currency that is accepted in addition to the USD is the Thai Baht, mainly used in the west of the country. Prices are often written in Baht in certain cities like Koh Kong, Poipet and Sisopon.
