Cambodian Visa Requirements to Visit the Temple of Preah Vihear

May 30th, 2010
This week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in Cambodia, along its border with Thailand.  The immense temple of Preah Vihear is one of the jewels of Khmer architecture.  Construction on the temple began in the 9th century, but the temple complex was rebuilt and improved by successive generations of Khmer rulers. Originally dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, it was eventually converted to a Buddhist temple when Buddhism overtook Hinduism in popularity in the region. Located along a cliff for maximum dramatic impact, the temple is an impressive sight for pilgrims and tourists alike. Since the temple is located right along the border of Thailand and Cambodia, it was the source of a decades -long dispute between the two countries.  However, in 1962, the International Cou

Cambodian Visa Requirements for Tourists

February 12th, 2010
According to Wikipedia, tourism is one of Cambodia's fastest-growing industries. In 1997, only 210,000 tourists visited Cambodia, but by 2004, that number had grown to 1,055,000.  In 2007, 2.0 million people visited the country. Tourism is Cambodia's second-largest industry, only ranking below textiles in importance.  Tourists come to Cambodia to experience the country's unique culture and to see ancient monuments like the temples of Angkor Wat. US citizens visiting Cambodia must have a passport and a Cambodian visa. Cambodian tourist visas are available on arrival in the Phnom Penh and Siem Reap airports, but if you apply ahead of time, you'll be able to get out of the airport much more quickly-definitely a relief after a long journey!

Get a Cambodian Visa To Visit Phnom Penh

December 27th, 2009
Phnom Penh, the bustling capital of Cambodia, is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. The city encompasses almost 7 centuries worth of history, some of it beautiful and some of it incomprehensibly tragic. According to legend, Phnom Penh was founded in 1372 by  a Buddhist nun named Penh. As the story goes, the old woman was going about her daily chores, and went down to the Mekong River to get some water. Miraculously, she found a dead tree floating in the river with five  statues of the Buddha inside. After retrieving the statues, the old woman had her neighbors pull the tree onto dry land and use the trunk to build a pagoda. The statues were placed inside the pagoda, and the shrine came to be known as Wat Phnom Daun Penh, after the old nun. It is from this templ


Get a Cambodian Visa To Experience the Magic of Angkor Wat

September 25th, 2009
One of the main tourist attractions in Cambodia is the ancient temple of Angkor Wat. The temple, built in the 1100's by the Khmer king Suryavarman II, is an incredible work of architecture that rivals and even surpasses other, more well-known buildings. Made out of stone, the temple towers over the surrounding landscape. It is richly decorated, both inside and out, with statues and bas-relief sculptures. Angkor Wat was built as a Hindi temple, dedicated to the god Vishnu. Then, later, in the 13th century, the new King Srindravarman changed the state religion of Cambodia from Hinduism to Buddhism and converted Angkor Wat into a Buddhist shrine.  However,  you don't have to be Hindu or Buddhist to appreciate the temple's monumental beauty and grandeur. Over the past 20 years, restora
