Cambodia Travel Guide

Use this Cambodia travel guide to discover perhaps the most beguiling of all countries in Southeast Asia. Long associated with the brutal Khmer Rouge, the country has risen above its blood-tinted history to become one of the region’s pre-eminent travel destinations. Ancient Cambodia produced one of world’s greatest civilizations at Angkor. But Angkor Wat is merely one temple lying at the heart of a thousand others. The capital, Phnom Penh, retains a skyline punctuated by spires, turrets and pinnacles of royal and religious origin rather than by office blocks. Further south is Sihanoukville, Cambodia’s most popular beachside town, and Kep, with its colonial ruins. The northeast is carpeted in jungle and dotted with thatched huts of minority groups, while near Ban Lung is the stunning Yaek Lom Lake.
