Phum Baitang Resort showcases the hidden beauty of Cambodia. The violent history of the country\u00a0has, in the past, overshadowed just how stunning the small county on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. Thankfully, Cambodia is changing and beginning to open up to the rest of the world.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nPhum Baitang is Khmer for \u201cgreen village\u201d and the name fits. The resort is built on eight acres of verdant and lush gardens and rice paddy fields. Located in Siem Reap, a rural area of Cambodia near the gateway to Angkor\u2019s World Heritage Sites, the resort features 45 villas. The villas are built in the traditional manner on stilts. There are 25 Terrace Villas that measure 645 square feet, each with a generous deck, and 20 Pool Villas that open into the garden area and feature a private plunge pool and lounge pavilion (the Pool Villas measure 775 square feet).\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe villas may be built like a traditional Khmer village, but even though the roofs are straw-thatched, you\u2019ll still be experiencing the lap of luxury. Local stone and wood were brought in to maintain the traditional feel. The rooms have all the amenities you need for a pleasurable stay. Yet, even with all these modern conveniences, you\u2019ll be able to enjoy the jungle that surrounds the resort\u2014with all of its sounds of life and nature.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCambodia\u2019s future of tourism is wide open and\u2014judging from Phum Baitang\u2014inviting.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
