Experience authentic Cambodian hospitality at the award winning Park Hyatt Siem Reap. Recognised as one of the Top 100 hotels in the world, Park Hyatt Siem Reap is situated near the renowned 12th century ruins of Angkor, a UNESCO World Heritage site that researchers believe was one of the largest pre-industrial cities in the world.  The temples in the area number more than 1,000 and include Angkor Wat, the world’s largest single religious monument.  The hotel is also a short distance from Siem Reap-Angkor International Airport, Cambodia’s second largest airport.

Strand Hotel

This 1901-built three story Victorian considered one of Southeast Asia’s grand colonial hotels and still one of its most awe inspiring. Once patronized exclusively by ‘royalty, nobility and distinguished personages’ according to Murray’s Handbook for Travellers in India, Burma and Ceylon, 1911, today this National Landmark in the heart of downtown Yangon confers a sense of its rich history to all who pass through its colonnaded exterior.
