There are few more exotic honeymoon destinations than Cambodia, a country whose holiday-worthy reputation has been built around one of the world’s most breathtaking man-made wonders but which also boasts unspoiled beaches, virgin jungles and fascinating cities. Your honeymoon will be an adventure first and foremost – the awe-inspiring Angkor Temples are, of course, going to play an important part in your holiday, but you should make an effort to really explore the Khmer Kingdom – you’ll be richly rewarded.
Alongside numerous places of cultural and historical interest there are miles of empty sands in the south, the unique capital city of Phnom Penh and the untamed north-east. To the south, there is Kep and Sihanoukville as well as exciting honeymoon possibilities for the more wanderlust newlyweds: the dusty streets of Kratie town or the elephants of Mondulkiri to the east. To the south there is the wildlife-rich Cardamom Mountains, amongst the last true wildernesses remaining in South-East Asia, and Koh Kong with its countless miles of untamed jungle.
Where to start
No visitor to Cambodia should miss out on the spectacular Angkor Temples, so you’ll need to decide whether to start or finish your honeymoon there. During the country’s dry months (November to May) you may want to spend some beach time in Sihanoukville or Kep, and Phnom Penh should definitely be included in your visit
There are luxurious Tonlé Sap cruises ranging from three to seven days, for a touch of romance, and a number of less-visited towns and regions that are well worth incorporating into your honeymoon, depending on the length of your stay. We can also combine destinations, such as Vietnam and Cambodia honeymoons. Your Selective Asia honeymoon planner will be happy to advise you on the best combination of places to include during your visit.
