Cambodia.

Getting there. direct flights from Russia to Cambodia yet.The easiest and most convenient way to reach - via Thailand.Take a ticket to Bangkok (at the same time you can devote a few days to this magical city) and then in Cambodia itself - by land or by air.By plane, of course, it is easier and faster, but buses, trains - cheaper and more interesting.The road from Bangkok to Sihanoukville takes about 12 hours, first by bus to Trat, then to the border with Cambodia, get the visa right there (costs about 800 baht for necessary color photos), then by bus or taxi to Sihanoukville.

Penh. capital of Cambodia.The town stands on a hill in the middle of the 19th century under the patronage of the French was completely rebuilt "in the mind" - the French have built roads, hospitals, schools, all the main attractions were also created with them.In the capital, a huge number of hotels to suit all tastes and budgets, so will not remain without shelter.Pay attention to the location, if you want to enjoy the sight

s.

Royal Palace with a great surrounding area, close to the Silver Pagoda, the floor of which is paved with five thousand silver plates.Not far from the palace is the National Museum of Cambodia.It is the largest collection of sculptures Angkor period - the heyday of Khmer culture.Visit Central Park, built by the French, it stands out against the background of Asian architecture.For souvenir shopping go to the Russian market - a huge selection and the prices do not bite.


Sihanoukville. main resort of the country with beautiful beaches and paradise islands nearby.Cambodia is not too spoiled by tourists, until recently, this country was known only as a supplement to excursions from Thailand, so the beaches of Sihanoukville is not packed with tourists and locals do not look at white-skinned as walking wallets.I think that the situation will change soon enough, unfortunately.

Although undeveloped tourism in Cambodia, there is everything you need: bars, restaurants, clubs, diving centers, shops, beaches and much more.In this country, very low taxes on imported goods, so prices in the supermarkets can not but rejoice.The restaurant offers an extensive selection of fresh seafood and now a French wine.The level of English among local residents is significantly higher than in neighboring Thailand.

Near Sihanoukville is located a couple of dozen small islands, most of which are uninhabited, but there are others where you can rent a bamboo bungalow and spend an unforgettable night on the island.To organize such a trip is a snap, and the day on a deserted island with white sand and clear water, you will remember for a lifetime.

Angkor Wat. huge temple complex, to see that most of the rides and Cambodia.It was built in the 12th century and served as the mausoleum of King.The walls of temples and palaces decorated with thousands of figures of gods and heroes of the Indian epic Ramayana scenes.The central pyramid of Angkor Wat height of 55 meters surrounded by a vast rectangular trench with a width of 190 meters.The complex consists of several buildings, amazing imagination, it is a huge ancient city.This is where many of the scenes were filmed "Lara Croft - Tomb Raider".Angkor Wat - the largest religious structure in the world, it is more Egyptian and Aztec pyramids.
