With a central location in the region bordering Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, it’s perfectly located for exploring. No visit would be complete without seeing the ancient and extensive temple complex of Angkor Wat. The capital Phnom Penh is a wonderful chaos of scooters, rickshaws, trucks and cars interspersed with reminders of Cambodia’s colonial past as well as the country’s more turbulent and moving recent history. You’ll find an attractive riverside district with shops and bars and you’ll meet friendly people who truly love to welcome visitors. There are excellent beaches too along the gulf of Siam, ideal for relaxing for a few days after a busy time sightseeing.
