If you want a honeymoon that blends the quintessential fly and flop with some culture and history, Cambodia is the perfect destination.
Yet to experience its major tourism boom compared to its South
East Asian neighbours, Cambodia has retained its unspoilt scenery
and authentic charm. A phoenix rising from the ashes of a turbulent
past, Cambodia is very much a destination on the up; all the more
reason to enjoy a luxury honeymoon here sooner rather than
Those in search of sun, sea, sand and some pretty spectacular
hotels to boot should head to the coastal towns of Sihanoukville
or Kep. While the pristine white sand beaches and beautifully
clear ocean have always been there, it's taken a while for some
really good hotels to catch up. The wait, however, is over with the
hotly anticipated Song Saa resort very much living up to (high)
expectations, among other great properties too. One of the best
things about Cambodia's coastline, though, is that it is dotted
with beautiful, uninhabited islands so you can sunbathe on a
different beach every day. There are some fabulous spas in these
areas too so the happy couple can unwind after the whirlwind of
chaos that is a wedding; a certain amount of relaxation is the key
to any luxury honeymoon.
Honeymooners looking for a spot (or a bucket-load) of culture
will have their socks firmly blown off by Cambodia's Angkor
complex. Best seen at sunrise when the view is nothing short of
life-changing and the crowds haven't arrived yet, Angkor is a truly
spectacular collection of centuries-old temples spread over roughly
250 square miles.
For a taste of modern Cambodian life, Phnom Penh is
the place to be with its French colonial influences, buzzy rooftop
bars and bustling local markets. It's also a great base from which
to step into Cambodia's turbulent and bloody history with a tour of
the Killing Fields and S-21, the prison where many were tortured
and killed under the Pol Pot regime.
So whether you simply want to spend your honeymoon lounging on
the beach, or if you want to intersperse the relaxation with some
culture and history, Cambodia is a truly exceptional
