Flights from Cambodia

If you’re a beer lover, you’ll be having a pretty good time in Cambodia. The country is a major exporter of beer and the beloved drink is sold at very affordable prices in the country, with many brands to choose from. Apart from beer, people go to Cambodia to visit places of religious importance and take in the beautiful scenery.

Besides certain customs that you should abide by, such as dressing modestly and pointing your feet away from others when seated, Cambodians are generally a friendly people that make visitors feel welcome. If you’re headed out of Cambodia for your next destination already, make sure you’ve seen the following before you leave:

Phnom Penh 

In Phnom Penh, Wat Phnom is the capital’s symbolic temple that locals have been fervently going to for prayers for more than 600 years. Also, located on the outskirts of this city is the Killing Fields Museum, which houses elaborate articles and photos from the 1976 Cambodian genocide.  

Battambang

Battambang is a quiet city compared to some of its busier counterparts. Life is laid back, so traffic lights aren’t even needed here. Immerse yourself in the Cambodian lifestyle by visiting the farming villages along the Sangker River. Kayaks are also available for rent and you can take one down the river to enjoy a tranquil time. Further out from the town is a reservoir called Kamping Puoy, whose construction was planned by the Khmer Rouge and cost the lives of many to build. Now, Kamping Puoy is a picturesque location with food and drink vendors, which makes it a popular picnic site.  

Siem Reap

People visit Siem Reap to visit the iconic temples, but the city has also raised its appeal thanks to night markets, fish therapies and Pub Street. Also, make a trip to the Cambodian Cultural Village, a resort that seeks to promote Cambodian culture. Here, you get to see traditional Cambodian costumes, performances and architecture.

As you’re making your way out of Cambodia, consider flying to these countries:

Thailand

On the northern borders of Cambodia sits Thailand. See the Grand Palace in Bangkok, where the King of Thailand resides, or the Wat Phra Kaew temple, which houses the Emerald Buddha carved out of a piece of jade. Tourists who have never laid eyes on a white Bengal tiger before can do so at the Dusit Zoo. The feline is just one of many rare animals at the oldest zoo in Thailand.

Vietnam

Vietnam lies on the south and western borders of Cambodia. The country that gave us the delightful Pho also has a spread of other delectable local cuisine. Enjoy rural life at the Mekong Delta, stand in awe of Vietnam’s tallest temple, Thien Mu Pagoda, or pay your respects at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the resting ground for the body of Vietnam’s noble leader.

Singapore

Also a short flight away from Cambodia is Singapore, situated at the southernmost point of the Malay Peninsula. Singapore’s iconic Merlion can be seen majestically spewing water into the Singapore River at the Merlion Park, while real lions can be seen at the Singapore Zoo located at Mandai Lake Road.
