Cambodian Cultural village

Cambodia is a small country with giant buildings and an abundance of natural attractions, which will require you a few weeks to have a tour across the country. However, if your trip only lasts for several days and you do not want to miss a thing, this is Cambodian Cultural Village, a theme park and museum, which can meet the demand.

Constructed in 2001 and opened to public in 2003, the theme park has attracted thousands of people to come here because of its uniqueness. The Cultural Village contains replicas of famous landmark buildings all over the country. Thus, by spending limited time in the theme park, we can definitely have a mini tour across Cambodia.

In all, there are eleven unique villages each one is a showcase of different landmarks and lifestyles of nineteen Cambodian ethnic minorities. Though the houses and villages were recreated, they still share distinguishing features with genuine ones in many aspects. For example, the houses were completely made from wood with carvings and soft kills in stone. Adventure Cambodian Cultural village with Tours in Cambodia
