Perfect Holiday in Cambodia
Cambodia has kept its doors shut against tourism for several years back. Now, Cambodia with open arms and a warm welcome has finally opened its doors to tourists looking to explore its cultural heritage and traditions. Now, it is not only possible to read about the wonderful ancient temples and sandy beaches but you also stand a chance of seeing the attractions in person.
Cambodia has an amazing history not just in its well known temples, wonderful vegetation and sandy beaches but in its culture. Traveling to Cambodia is fun and entertaining as it serves as an eye opener and a perfect destination for family vacation.
Of the many beautiful places of Cambodia, Angkor Wat is just stunning. It is seen by many as one of the most beautiful places on this planet that took close to 4 centuries to complete.
The Angkor Wat was built by the Khmer Kings and had been hidden in the forest not until 150 years ago when it was discovered by a French man. Due to its massive size, it is somewhat impossible to walk from one temple to another. To experience an enjoyable tour of Angkor Wat, you might want to consider hiring a motorcycle to make moving around less stressful and easier. Another alternative is hiring the services of a local guide with experience to take you around this beautiful temple. Hiring local guides also comes with additional services which include transportation. The Lost City of Angkor is indeed one place you should look forward to visiting
Transportation in Cambodia is not as efficient when compared to many other developed countries. Traveling between destinations is an entirely wholesome experience as it gives you more time to appreciate the country’s rich cultural heritage and traditions.
The people of Cambodia are warm, welcoming and very friendly especially to tourist. They are ready to receive guests from across the globe while putting off a display of their friendly culture as well as their tasty cuisines. This is one of the reasons why Cambodia entertains thousands of visitors annually.
Despite the fact that western ideals has greatly impacted the Cambodian culture just like it has affected other cultures across the world, the strong influence of Buddhism and Hinduism is still very much evident. This can be seen in their arts as well as many buildings having statues and images of Buddha.
Religion in Cambodia is one of the major things that make Cambodia what it is today, as it is a major part of their culture. About 95% of the entire population in Cambodia practices Theravada Buddhist while the minority of the people is made up of other religions including Islam, Christianity, Animism and Hinduism.
Basically the Cambodian culture hinges on the Ideals found in Buddhism. The government strongly supports Khmer Theravada Buddhism among Cambodians and as a result of this monks are entitled to certain incentives offered by the government including the use of public infrastructure.
