Rail Tours in Cambodia

Lose yourself in this intriguing country

Cambodia in South East Asia is a country of exceptional beauty. See golden beaches that line the coastline and tropical islands that are scattered just offshore in the Gulf of Thailand when you enjoy a Cambodia train holiday.The mountains to the north are home to spectacular lakes and waterfalls, and the rest of Cambodia is dedicated to wild jungle and rice paddies. Bordering Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, this intoxicating country is bursting with ornate temples and exquisite architecture, and the locals welcome visitors with open arms. 

Many describe a Cambodian train holiday as more of an adventure than a vacation, and it is easy to see why when you read about the incredible sights you can witness when you travel there.

Cambodia's capital is Phnom Penh, and while many visitors appreciate its chaotic charm, it is often the city of Siem Reap to which they flock, given the fact that it is the gateway to the largest temple on Earth, Angkor Wat.

Travelling in Cambodia

A Cambodia train holiday is incomplete without a visit to the capital, Phnom Penh. Once known as the 'Pearl of Asia' owing to the fact that it was considered the most attractive French-built city on the Indochina Peninsula, there are some awe-inspiring sights to see such as the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda and the National Museum where you can learn about the country's compelling history.

Also on a Cambodian train holiday you will undoubtedly visit Angkor Wat, meaning 'City Temple'. Truly an impressive sight, the 12th century religious complex has been compared to the likes of Machu Picchu and Petra, and occupies an area so vast that spending a full day there is almost not enough. This fine example of Khmer architecture is something that Cambodia is mightily proud of, so proud in fact that it features on their national flag. This is definitely a sight not to be missed during a Cambodia train holiday.

The gateway to Angkor Wat is the city of Siem Reap, and many tourists stay there purely to visit the temple. However there is so much more to discover, and if you do get chance to explore during a train holiday in Cambodia, make sure you include the glorious Colonial and Chinese style architecture in the Old French Quarter.
