Cambodia & Mekong Delta
Cambodia is renowned for its ancient history, as on display at the amazing Angkor Wat, and notorious for its more recent past under the regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.
The River Mekong is the country's lifeblood and a trip through the Mekong Delta is a memorable way to journey from Cambodia to Vietnam.
Several airlines now service Siem Reap (for Angkor Wat) and the capital of Phnom Penh further south. A range of facilities and amenities are available throughout the country and English is widely spoken.
Cambodia and the Mekong Delta are blessed with one of Asia's simpler weather systems and despite having two distinct weather seasons – dry (October through April) and wet (May through September) - you can travel in Cambodia all year round. Within each season there are variations in temperature with the average being around 32°C. March through June, however, can see temperatures in excess of 35°C at times.
We visited Cambodia and the Mekong Delta in 2008 with our children aged 4 and 7, their grandparents aged in their 60s and two friends aged in their 50s.
