The plants and trees are just as unique, including the baobabs.


Once home to the feared Khmer Rouge, Cambodia is becoming one of Asia’s fastest-growing tourist destinations. A visit to the temple Angkor Wat is considered the highlight of any visit to Cambodia. Angkor Wat is adorned with carvings of incredible heavenly dancers wearing bangles, beaded anklets and sheer drop-waist skirts. The beaches of Sihanoukville are also a huge attraction.


Uruguay is becoming a hot spot for its amazing wineries and is the fourth-largest producer of wine in South America. Colonia del Sacramento, 180 km from the capital Montevideo, but only 50 km from Buenos Aires by ferry, is a picturesque town has been declared a Unesco World Heritage site.


Without a doubt, a trek to Salar de Uyuni is a most haunting sight as it is home to world’s largest salt flat. When the surface is dry, the salar is a pure white vastnesswith blue sky and white ground. When there’s a tinyamount of water, the surface reflects the clouds and the blue sky and the horizon vanishes.
