Air China: New Beijing - Siem Reap, Cambodia service
Tuesday 5, November 2013
Siem Reap is the capital of Siem Reap Province and is close to the nation's capital Phnom Penh. It's most visited for Angkor Wat, which is widely acclaimed as one of the world's seven wonders.
Unlike bustling Phnom Penh, Siem Reap is a quiet town that strikes one as being secluded from the rest of the world. Siem Reap is a showcase of Khmer culture and boasts myriad ancient sites like palaces, temples, gardens and castles.
Air China's Beijing - Siem Reap service makes travel to Siem Reap much easier than before, as travelers are spared the trouble of having to make a transfer in Phnom Penh or Bangkok. The flights, CA825/6, will be operated twice a week (Wednesday, Sunday) from December 1 to December 31, 2013, and will increase to four times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday) starting 2014.
To expand its Southeast Asia schedule, Air China will soon start new services Beijing - Chiang Mai and Wuhan - Chiang Mai, and increase frequencies on its Beijing - Bangkok and Beijing - Phuket routes.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
