Paddling Out At

The Water Festival Cambodia’s annual Water Festival, or Bon Om Touk, which this year fell on November 2-4, is renowned for its traditional boat races held along the Tonle Sap river in Phnom Penh. Best viewed from the bustling banks of Sisowath Quay or the opposite section on Chhroy Changvar peninsular, the races are an exhilarating spectacle with teams representing their home provinces paired off against each other throughout all three days of the public holiday. The brightly-painted dragon boats can measure more than 30 metres in length and hold 80 oarsmen. The Water Festival falls on the full moon during the Buddhist lunar month of Kadeuk, and marks the end of the rainy season and start of the fishing season. It dates back to the 12th century during the reign of Angkorian King Jayavarman VII, with his naval forces also celebrating their fleet’s superiority. Buddhist traditions of the festival include Loy Pratip, a nighttime parade of huge illuminated boats – each sponsored by the various government ministries and other institutions – that light up the waterways with colourful electric lights. The ceremony of Sampeas Preah Khe, meanwhile, pays homage to the moon, with the full moon believed to be a good omen for the coming harvest. Following this, Cambodian Buddhists gather at a pagoda for Ak Ambok, where they eat rice fried in its husks and mixed with coconut and sugar or banana (known as ambok), traditionally after midnight. Smaller Water Festival celebrations take place in Siem Reap and across the country, but the largest festivities are in Phnom Penh. Fireworks light up the sky over the Tonle Sap each night from 7pm, and floating, candle-lit lanterns holding flowers and incense sticks are cast off from the banks. If you'd like to launch your own floating lantern, they can be purchased for about $3 from riverside vendors. The Water Festival also marks the seasonal reversing of the Tonle Sap river's current, and is seen as a way of giving thanks to the waterways for providing fertile land and plentiful fish.

PHNOM PENH GUIDE

Phnom Penh’s bevy of businesses have grown to offer something for everyone, meaning there’s never been a better time to visit the Kingdom’s capital. Here’s our selection of outstanding establishments to get you started:

Palace Gate Hotel 

#44B Sothearos Blvd

This brand new luxury hotel has arguably the best location in the whole of Phnom Penh, being mere metres from its namesake, the gates of the Royal Palace. 105 rooms are housed in two separate buildings: the colonial-style Royal Wing, with a gym on the top floor, and the Apsara Wing, which draws inspirations from classic Asian designs. The centerpiece of the hotel is Mealea Restaurant, a beautifully restored colonial building with stunning original floor tiles, ornate columns, and walls adorned by photographs of Cambodian royalty. The fine dining experience of traditional Khmer cuisine and Western grill can be enjoyed by both in-house guests and outside diners, and there are three meeting rooms available for private bookings of 25, 30 or 45 people. The newly opened Palace Sky Bar grants spectacular views to the Palace and Wat Botum park, and a Christmas Gala Dinner and a New Year Countdown are events scheduled for December. Guests can also choose from an extensive range of treatments in the spa facility downstairs, with rooms available for individuals or couples to book.

Hard Rock Cafe

Exchange Square Mall, St. 106

Phnom Penh becomes the latest franchise destination of this restaurant chain behemoth, now spanning 75 countries worldwide. Hard Rock Cafe is your best stop for classic American cuisine, such as their Famous Fajitas and hot fudge brownies, which comes accompanied by nightly live performances from the in-house rock band. Menu favourites include the Original Legendary® Burger, the Jumbo Combo and the Cobb salad, while Taco Tuesday offers 99c+ tacos and $3+ Margaritas. Don’t miss the Sunday Carvery from 11am to 2pm, featuring all-you-can-eat grilled chicken, beef or lamb with all the trimmings. Their signature cocktails, like the Mojito and Hurricane, are two for the price of one during Happy Hour from 5pm to 7pm. From Sunday to Wednesday there’s even an hourly opportunity to win cash deductions off the bill ranging from $15 to $50. Scan the walls for an array of rock memorabilia including Paul McCartney’s guitar and Katy Perry’s dress, and grab a souvenir on your way out from the RockShop, stocked with branded merchandise.

Tamasa Serviced Apartments

#2300, St. 2004

Catering to people whose exacting standards allow for nothing less, these elegant 26 serviced apartments are managed by Tama Home Cambodia Ltd, specialists in the field. Guests are permitted a stay as brief as one night to anything up to permanent residence. The one-bedroom studios go for $50 a night and the two bedroom apartments for $65, with free breakfast and high speed WiFi throughout. The natural light-filled rooms are minimalist in design with seamless joinery and tasteful fittings. Head to the top level for a dip in the infinity pool, or go downstairs to the café, an ideal hangout with coffee prepared from a unique blend of international beans sourced by Tama and roasted onsite. Discounts are offered for Saturday check-ins, and you can receive a free coffee when checking in or liking their Facebook page. Access to the exclusive Cambodian Country Club next door is also free to guests, including activities such as tennis, table tennis, badminton, volleyball, basketball, fencing, and football. Horse riding and archery sessions can also be purchased.

Rock Hotstone

#36A St. 422

Opened by three veterans of the food & beverage industry, including an award-winning Khmer sommelier, this new establishment offers a fun, fresh and healthy way to cook premium steak and seafood just as you like it on your very own searing hotstone placed on your table. The Cambodian chef also employs traditional family recipes, including loc lak and cha kdav sach kor. Business lunches have proven a hit among guests, the most popular being the Australian rump steak, side dish and soft drink for only $6! Other specials include starters of fresh oysters at $1.50 each, and Australian T-bone steak ($16) or Wagyu steak ($14), accompanied by a selection of homemade sauces. The Cucumber Rock signature cocktail features refreshing cucumber juice mixed with gin by the resident bartender, who also conducts personal cockail lessons. Current promotions include ten-dollar tenderloins on Tuesday nights, and five oysters and a glass of prosecco for $10 on Fridays. So if the sizzle of steak on stone scintillates, stop by!

SIEM REAP GUIDE

Whether you are looking to shop til you drop, tuck in to some scrumptious food, or simply relax with a sensual spa treatment or a dip in a luxurious hotel pool, we have have you well covered with this list of top spots in Siem Reap:

Anjali by Syphon Hotel

#1705 Korean-Cambodian Friendship Road 30

Turquoise waters reflect on turquoise windows at this boutique hotel ideally located mere minutes from the airport, the city centre and the temples of Angkor. A hidden green oasis with its hanging gardens, Anjali is designed in harmony with its surrounds, formed by the peaceful Khmer culture. Each of the gorgeous 29 guestrooms, exquisite in their detail and mixing cutting-edge design with local influences, has either a balcony or terrace and/or pool access. The hotel houses Hunkaar Table & Lounge, open from 11am to 10:30pm and offering both contemporary Cambodian fusion cuisine and Western cuisine, as well as some innovative cocktails, with a vast air-conditioned terrace overlooking the swimming pool. Present this review to get 5% off the A La Carte menu. The restaurant is a bright, vibrant environment while the lounge, pervaded by a subdued ambience, contains large sofas akin to beds, perfect for when you need to just chillax and spend the evening sipping cocktails to some blissful tunes.

Charcoal Restaurant

Wat Bo Road

The signature dish of this elegant restaurant is the L'Entrecôte Café de Paris Secret Sauce, a premium New Zealand rib eye steak big enough for two to share, grilled to perfection over charcoal and served with either garlic pan-fried potatoes or golden French fries, plus a bottle of house wine for good measure. The recipe for the “Relais-style” secret sauce, which is infused with Cambodian spices, is known only by owner Saryroth, who prepares it herself at home. Dining pairs can also split a Cambodian fusion food set menu – the North Discovery set features chicken curry with rice noodle, sour soup, Knoub (fish with Khmer spices), Prahok Ktis (spicy pork dip), mango salad and spring rolls, while the South Discovery set has tiger prawn tom yam soup, seafood green curry, pomelo salad, steamed bar fish, fresh spring rolls and Khmer crêpe. While you dine in the luscious garden, Charlie Chaplin silent movies are projected onto a 5-metre wide screen for some light entertainment.

H.I.S. Cambodia Travel 

Canadia Building, Sivatha Street

What makes this travel agency unique is that they offer tailor-made tours designed by you, the clientele. Using their online platform, www.guiddies.com, you are matched with professional private tour guides and packages that provide the exact experiences you desire. If that is not enough, they’re taking 10% off all tours for a special promotion during November and December. Of the standard tours available, the most popular is definitely the Tomb Raider tour, where you no longer need to live vicariously through Lara Croft, just experience the real thing! This one-day action-packed trip sends you trekking through one of the ancient wonders of the world: Angkor Wat. Bask in the majesty of the Bayon temple, with its 216 gigantic smiling faces, and creep through the mystical Ta Prohm temple, just as Angelina Jolie did in ‘Tomb Raider’. Additionally, you will experience the serenity of Ta Nei jungle temple, the Terrace of the Elephants, Baphoun temple, Pheameanakas temple, the Gate of Angkor Thom, and many more. Wat a day!

L'Annexe

#108, Sok San Road

This open air restaurant showcases a delicious marriage of Cambodian friendliness and French culinary know-how. Chef Aziz conjures up masterful, authentic dishes in the kitchen while his wife Rika takes care of hosting duties out front. The pair spent a whole year designing and constructing the restaurant on Rika’s parents’ land in Siem Reap town. The intimate atmosphere they have created draws influences from both Eastern and Western cultures, perfect for a romantic gourmet meal. French classics such as bœuf bourguignon, foie gras, carré d'agneau and Charolaise ribeye have proven the popular amongst their clientele, as has their tartes flambée, a pizza-like traditional delicacy from northeastern France. The chef’s signatures, however, are his desserts: Aziz learnt from some of the world’s most innovative patisserie chefs. L’Annexe’s best sellers are their ‘Black Pearl’, a spectacular spherical soufflé and sorbet encased in chocolate, and their exquisite lemon tart, served with mini meringues and a berry coulis. Wi-Fi is free and they accept credit cards.

SIHANOUKVILLE GUIDE

Sun, sea, sand – this southern coastal resort town has it all, and more. With an abundance of exquisite beaches, both on the mainland and on islands offshore, and plenty of great restaurants, bars, activities and hotels, you're all set for an unforgettable holiday:

Naia Otres Beach Resort

Otres Beach 2

Designed by architect Philippe Favre, this modern Mediterranean-style boutique haven is a taste of leisurely luxury in Sihanoukville. Made with 100% Cambodia-sourced materials, the thirty-two spacious rooms are replete with designer fittings and retro-style furniture, the majority of which feature either a balcony, terrace or patio. There’s eleven different room types to choose from, including superior or deluxe doubles and twins, and family rooms and junior suites. Welcoming staff can arrange activities such as paddleboarding, snorkelling, diving, boat excursions, horse-riding, massages and much more. You can also buy anything from beachwear to souvenirs in the onsite shop. Guests can enjoy their breakfasts daily at the hotel restaurant, whereas down on the beach the stylish, open air restaurant serves up tasty lunches, dinners and cocktails. Kids will not feel left out with their very own pool and playground next to the adults’ pool, set alongside a grove of trees. This resort should be your first resort for relaxing on the stunning Otres Beach 2.

Dao of Life

Serendipity Pier (above Yasmine Restaurant)

Imagine a vegan paradise, a cavernous domed ceiling perched above another restaurant right next to the pier with a majestic, panoramic view of Serendipity Beach. Dao uses fresh ingredients to create unique flavours, none of which results in the suffering of sentient beings! Their famed veggie burger with sweet potato chips is hugely popular, as is the homemade ice-cream. The avocado on toast makes for an exquisite breakfast or for the sweet of tooth, the pancake stack with a tangy raspberry sauce. Signature drinks include Mean Green Machine, the Goji Berry Super smoothie, and when you collect five stamps on your loyalty card you get your sixth smoothie free! The staff are more a family than a workforce, with Srey Nit now graduating to co-owner through her undying dedication. As well as hosting regular free movie screenings, you can also just walk in and swap-not-shop your clothes with the ones on the racks! This social enterprise supports local projects, the arts, activism and your tingling tastebuds.

Above Us Only Sky

Serendipity Beach

The sound of the night’s black waves against the coastal rocks evokes the same sense of poetry as this al fresco bar’s name suggests. Most of the customers are a combination of chilled expats and tourists sipping drinks that range anywhere from a $0.75 draft beer during happy hour (5pm-8pm) to one of their delicious cocktails – the most popular being the Mango Magic, a delicate balance of vodka, triple sec, lime and mango. This bar, capped by a rustic thatched roof, also offers hands-down the best steak in town. The rib eye and fillet steaks are imported from New Zealand and aged for a minimum of 28 days. These are then expertly prepared by general manager Gary Noel, a respected veteran of hospitality, whose pride in his meat cuts is consistently demonstrated by the excellent results. This comes with a choice of either jacket potato, roasted to perfection, or mash with veggies, making for a hearty meal. All that’s left is to recline into relaxation for a night to remember in the breezy atmosphere of this beachfront business of 13 years.

Woody's Quads

Phum Bei, Sereyheap Street

Grab this unique opportunity to experience the real Cambodian countryside with all the exhilaration of a quad bike! Soon you’ll be zipping along the beautiful woodland tracks usually only accessible by those in the know. Visit the likes of Kbay Chhay waterfall, lakes with local fishermen, and remote pagodas. One of the highlights of the tours is interacting with the rural village communities, members of which melt the coldest of hearts with their friendliness and unbridled joy on their faces. Prior quad biking experience is not required, as all tours are conducted under the safe guidance of pro UK rider Nigel. The safari tours are designed for small groups (maximum of five) so that you are guaranteed the requisite personal attention. Packages include Adventure Safari Tours (2 hours), Mini Adventure Tour (3.5 hours), Maxi Adventure Tour (6.5 hours), and Cruise Special (6 hours), all offering an extensive variety of exploration routes. Definitely tick this one off your bucket list!

If The Walls Could Talk‌

Designed to be impossible to miss, with gleaming gables, golden tendril-like finials reaching for the sky, and towering columns topped by brick-coloured tiles, Cambodia’s pagodas are spiritual, communal and visual beacons for their communities. And the dramatic visual representations don’t stop there.

Stepping through carved wooden doors into the dim light inside, the only movement often comes from slender wisps of smoke floating off into the cool, still air from rows of incense sticks planted around the feet of Buddha statues that overshadow everything around them. But once you take your focus off them, the walls emerge out of the gloom, their painted murals telling a tale around the entire vihara, or congregational hall. Sometimes painted in vivacious colours and sometimes in rich, deep hues that soften the soul on sight, the murals depict scenes from Buddha’s 547 lives. Often there are scenes from the Reamker, the Khmer version of Hindu epic poem, the Ramayana. Examples of these can be found in Wat Bo, perhaps the most romantic pagoda in Siem Reap, and the Silver Pagoda in Phnom Penh, which has minute depictions of the Reamker on walls that stand three metres tall, and stretch across more than 600 metres along.

But the relative constancy is quite deliberate, an indication of respect for what they stand for. “Religious art must respect traditions and inner rules that forbid any evolution or development,” explained Dr Roveda. But traditions are never completely unassailable. “Changes did happen with the arrival of the French in the early 19th century. They gradually spread principles of European art including the study of volumes, shades, perspectives, and colour theory,” he added.

Cambodian Ceramics Crafted Through The Ages

They may not be so finely constructed and crafted as the exquisite temples dedicated to the Khmer Empire’s spiritual leaders, but shattered and scattered across ancient settlements, ceramics have their own tales to tell of how the people of Cambodia once lived, and worshipped together.

Thanks to the tremendous interest in that particular period, most discoveries relate to the era between the 9th and 13th centuries, when the Angkor Empire ruled the region. In fact, walking through the Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap, it is possible for the sharp-eyed to pick out shards of earthenware strewn across the forest floors and pathways. It is unlawful to take them away, it should be noted. However, archaeologists have also unearthed ceramics from prehistoric sites in Cambodia going back as far as 5000BCE; prehistoric in other words. It is a rich tradition that lives on to this day. Ancient Cambodians used ceramics for a variety of reasons, including for architectural features, especially roof tiles and finial motifs, and religious purposes such as alms collection pots, vases and statues. But the vast majority were used in every day life, as cooking pots, storage containers, and water carriers, although interestingly, not plates. “Khmer ceramics are unique, unlike any other Asian wares”, says Dawn Rooney, a specialist in Southeast Asian art history and the author of Khmer Ceramics: Beauty and Meaning, and many other books on the subject. “This is because many of the shapes emulated metal forms, and several of these, such as the kendi and pedestal jars, can be seen on the bas-reliefs of the Bayon [temple].” Using local kaolinite clay, Cambodians created pieces that were Celadon, a jade green glaze formed when wooden ash inside the kiln during the firing process binded with the exterior surfaces.

Golf in Cambodia

A Buffet Of Courses When it comes to golf, Cambodia has come a long way in recent times, both in terms of the country as a golf tourism destination and the local golf scene. Whereas in years past, rounds were comprised predominantly of tourists with just a handful of homegrown players, the ratio is now closer to 50/50 according to David Baron, the Director of Golf at Angkor Golf Resort in Siem Reap.


AngkoR

In-Flight Magazine November - December 2017

Baron says visitors are generally “pleasantly surprised with their golfing experience in Cambodia, discovering several world-class courses on offer in locations that are unique and unspoiled”. There are currently three 18-hole golf courses in Siem Reap, four in Phnom Penh (as well as a 9-hole par 3 course), and two down in Koh Kong province, with many boasting driving ranges among other facilities. Cambodia Golf & Country Club was the first course to open in the Kingdom back in 1997. Nicknamed the “Sugar Palm Course”, it’s serene setting and $48 price tag for a round (the cheapest in Cambodia for 18 holes) including a caddie help persuade you to make the 45-minute drive west from Phnom Penh city centre along National Highway 4. 1999 welcomed the opening of the country’s second course, Royal Cambodia Phnom Penh Golf Club, which quickly became a popular choice for local dignitaries and expatriates due to its location (8km northwest of the airport) and its affordable green fees (now set at $70 for weekend walk ins, caddie included). The large, undulating greens and water hazards on 12 of the holes will test golfers of all skill levels. Phokeethra Country Club up in Siem Reap was the first true international standard golf course to open in Cambodia in 2007. It has hosted Asian PGA Tour events, and features sweeping fairways, generous greens and an abundance of water hazards. Don’t miss the restored 11th century ‘Roluh’ bridge between the 9th and 10th

Garden City Golf Club joined the PP party in 2013, the eye-catching layout constructed on rice paddies around 8km north of the city and the other side of the Tonle Sap river. With comparable standards to the best in the Kingdom, 18 holes cost $95 at weekends and $75 during week, plus $15 for caddies. The most recent courses to be completed in Cambodia are over at the Dara Sakor Golf Club, roughly equidistant between Sihanoukville and Koh Kong town and on the southern coast of Boutom Sakor National Park. The Ocean Course opened in 2015 and the Hill View Course in May of this year, with another course to bring the total of holes to 54 in the tropical paradise resort. As is common in Asia, caddies are compulsory on all courses as they ensure the levels of service remain high and the links are well maintained. Golf carts can be hired at most places for between $20 and $30 per 18-hole round. More golf clubs are slated to open in the near future in Cambodia. These include Vattanac Golf Resort, a Faldo luxury resort around 10km southeast of Phnom Penh with two 18-hole courses, LYP Resort & Golf Club roughly 13km north of the city with 27 holes; and Cambodia Vietnam

Amok One of the highlights of Cambodia’s cuisine is amok, a creamy coconut milk-based curry infused with the classic Khmer curry paste known as kroeung – comprised of freshly pounded shallots, lemongrass, garlic, chilies, turmeric, galangal, and kaffir lime – as well as fish sauce, palm sugar, crushed roasted peanuts, egg, and the famous (and pungent) fermented fish paste prahok. A slightly bitter local herb called slok ngor is also added to complete the delicate flavour profile, distinguishing it from other regional variants in countries such as Thailand, Laos and Malaysia.

“Cambodian cuisine can often be thought of in terms of its lightness,” says renowned Cambodian chef Luu Meng. “There are clean, clear soups with fresh herbs, gently spiced curries, and lots of subtle flavours in so much of what we eat – even though we will always love prahok! “[Amok] is a mildly spiced curry,” continues Meng, “softened by the flavours of turmeric, palm sugar and coconut milk, then gently steamed to add an airy lightness to the whole dish. It’s that subtle interplay of lightness in texture and flavours that has really made amok as popular as it is.” The

Prices for an amok can range from around $4 per serving with rice at many local eateries up to $8 at high-end establishments such as Luu Meng’s Malis restaurants, both in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. This truly local delicacy is something no tourist should miss out on – a dish that captivates the senses and never fails to satisfy.

Q&A

Ke Leng and Ouk Sreymom “Whenever I play, I always try to stay calm and self-meditate, even when I miss.”

In August of this year, veteran Cambodian pétanque players Ouk Sreymom

 KL: [My ability in pétanque] really comes down to my love for it and my patience with it. I listen to my coaches, and I learn from any experiences of losses. Whenever I play, I always try to stay calm and self-meditate, even when I miss. I try to block out any annoying sounds around. Nothing is going to stand in our way if we fully commit ourselves to achieving our goal. We have to clearly know the rules of the game, such as throwing the jack between six and ten metres. And we need to check the playing surface, and find out how we can throw our boules (metal balls) to get close to the jack.

Q What difficulties have you faced playing in competitions abroad?

A O S: Food can be an issue in Islamic countries, such as Malaysia. Switching to a bread-based diet was difficult for me at first, as I used to only eat rice and soup. Also, the courts in Malaysia were like the paved roads in Cambodia, so it is not easy for me.  KL: It can be hard to adapt to foreign food. I wrapped things like dry fish and beef

Hong Kong

The Pearl of the Orient


Far from being just a massive metropolis dominated by skyscrapers and non-stop commercial activity, Hong Kong’s true identity actually lies in its vibrant cultural landscape. With deep-rooted Chinese influences, a rich colonial tradition, and the many contributions of its home-grown talent, Hong Kong is truly a city to behold.

This glitzy harbour area, which lies just off the southeast coast of Mainland China, became a British colony during the 19th century when, after the First Opium War (1839–1842), the Qing Empire yielded control. During the Second World War, the city was occupied by Japan, but British control resumed in 1945. It wasn’t until 1997 that sovereignty was transferred back to the People's Republic of China, with Hong Kong becoming a special administrative region of the Asian giant, and enjoying a high degree of autonomy under the “one country, two systems” principle. Nicknamed the “Pearl of the Orient”, Hong Kong has more formidable features than we care to count. But it is its magnificent and iconic skyline that undoubtedly takes the cake, punctuated by feats of engineering like

On top of being the world’s most successful financial centre, Hong Kong also prides itself on being an entertainment hub. Several Hollywood


performers, esteemed actors and martial artists have originated from Hong Kong cinema, most notably Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Chow Yun-fat, Michelle Yeoh and Jet Li. A number of local film-makers have also achieved international success, such as John Woo or Wong Kar-wai. Hong Kong remains one of the most popular international travel destinations in the world. With a legendary skyline, plentiful nature, an excellent cuisine, and a nearly endless list of shopping options to suit everyone’s needs and desires, there is little doubt as to why every year so many people from around the planet choose to visit this dazzling and multifaceted city.

Phnom Bakheng

– The Top Spot for Angkor Sunsets

Phnom Bakheng is a “temple-mountain” in the Angkor Archaelogical Park built between 889 and 910 AD during the reign of King Yasovarman I. Perched on top of a 65-metre-high hill, it has become a hugely popular with tourists, who flock to the summit at dusk to take in the stunning view of the iconic Angkor Wat temple roughly 1.3 kilometres away to the southeast, as well as the sun setting behind the West Baray reservoir.

Due to the swathes of tourists on a daily basis, Phnom Bakheng is one of the most threatened monuments of Angkor, with World Monuments Fund working since 2004, in partnership with APSARA (the Authority for the Protection of the Site and Management of the Region of Angkor), to help conserve the ancient temple. Phnom Bakheng was dedicated to Shiva and designed as a symbolic depiction of Mount Meru, the historic home of the Hindu gods. It was the first temple-mountain to be built in the Angkor vicinity, featuring a pyramid form of five tiers and seven levels, which represent the seven heavens of Hindu mythology. Originally, there were 44 towers at the base and 12 on each of the five tiers, with the summit hosted four more oriented to the cardinal points of the compass, along with a central sanctuary. This total of 108 towers correlates to the 27 days in each of the four lunar phases. Phnom Bakheng was converted from a Hindu temple into a Buddhist temple, with a Sitting Buddha monument created on its upper tier, now sadly lost. A Reclining Buddha of a similar scale was crafted in stone across the western side, and the outlines of the figure are still visible to this day.

It’s worth noting that numbers are restricted to 300 at the top during sunset, so it is advisable to be there for around 3:30pm to guarantee a place and allow two hours in total for the experience. To capture a decent image of the distant Angkor Wat, you’ll need at least a 300mm lens. Sunrises are also a popular time to visit, when the conditions are cool and there are few people around. Phnom Bakheng’s incredible vista was briefly showcased in the 2001 Hollywood blockbuster Tomb Raider, when Angelina Jolie’s character Lara Croft looks through binoculars at the summit.

ATR SAFETY

យនហោ ្ត ះបភ ្រ ទ េ ATR 72 រចនា ATR 72: DESIGNED WITH SAFETY IN MIND ឡើងដោយផ្តត ោ លើសវុ ត្ថភា ិ ពខ្ពស់ Cambodia Angkor Air is proud to count the ATR 72 among its airliners. This prestigious aircraft is a twin-engine turboprop short-haul airliner built by the French-Italian manufacturer ATR. The ATR 72 is widely recognised as the most cost-effective regional aircraft, a reputation that has made it the preferred choice for short-haul flights. The craft’s innovative design introduces a range of improvements that have dramatically improved the passenger experience. The airliner’s revolutionary design minimises noise within the cabin, thanks to the installation of dynamic vibration absorbers and the use of advanced, soundproof materials. This makes for a silent and serene environment, maximising customer satisfaction. The innovations introduced by the design of the ATR 72 are not limited to passenger comfort. Powered by PW127 engines, the ATR 72 provides outstanding short-field landing performance, particularly for an aircraft of its size. With regards to safety, the ATR 72-500 has been suitably modified to better handle icing, and has a clean safety record. To deal with control surface jams, the ATR 72 has a provision to disconnect the otherwise linked elevator, allowing for the captain or the first officer to have full authority over their respective, independent elevators. With the inclusion of the revolutionary ATR 72, Cambodia Angkor Air offers its customers one of the best flying experiences of any airliner in the region. Clients can enjoy the aircraft on Phnom Penh-Siem Reap, Siem Reap-Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh-Ho Chi Minh City routes, and more to come. Always giving maximum priority to safety, Cambodia Angkor Air continues to invest in new aircrafts that adhere to all international safety requirements.
