Following in below here are some useful travel information in Cambodia.

People, History and Culture

Cambodia is a humble yet majestic country with a story as dynamic as its culture. The culture of the Cambodian people can be seen clearly as a mixture of Hinduism and Buddhism. The official religion of the Kingdom of Cambodia is Theravada Buddhism. Cambodia’s complex culture reflects the long, rich and varied history. About the heritage, the golden age of Cambodia was between the 9th and 14th centuries during the time of the Khmer Empire. The impressive Angkor Wat temple is a lasting symbol of Cambodia’s dominance and remains a source of national pride. 80% of the population lives in rural areas as the farmers. Generally, thanks to the recent influx of tourism dollars and renewed interest in Khmer culture, Cambodia is in the midst of the cultural and historical icons like the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Complex. Khmer people are regarded as some of the Southeast Asia’s friendliest locals.

Nowadays, Cambodia is a perfect place to witness remnants of the ancient Khmer Empire, heralded as one of the most advanced and powerful ancient empires in the world.

Transportation

Generally, the cost for getting around Cambodia’s cities is inexpensive. Tuk-Tuks is the best-known mode of transportation that are more maneuverable than a car but safer than a motorbike. Most tuk-tuks in Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and other cities have cushioned seats and make for an exciting mode of transportation when visiting temples, museums and other sites. This kind of transportation is the best option for visitors who want to discover the fascinating country. While popular with locals, motorbike taxis are unregulated and can drive recklessly. Voi A Tours does not recommend motorbike transportation in Cambodia because of more riskier than tuk-tuks. Moreover, taxis are more popular in Cambodia so travelers do not worry about transportation in this country.

Besides, Cambodia has three commercial airports: the largest airport is Pochentong which is Phnom Penh International Airport in Phnom Penh and the second airport is Siem Reap-Angkor International Airport and the third one is Sihanoukville.
