Cambodia is blessed with natural beauty, hospitable inhabitants, a long cultural history, and some of the most awe-inspiring temple architecture in the world. Most famous of its sights are the Khmer temples of Angkor Wat near Siem Reap. But the city should not be overlooked – Siem Reap is a town of gentle artisans, fascinating shops, and delectable restaurants.
Contemporary Cambodia can be found in the revitalized, French-influenced capital of Phnom Penh. Its most important sights can easily be seen in a day, but are certainly worth a stop.
Four hours south of Phnom Penh lies Sihanoukville, the gateway to a coastline of sleepy beaches and the surprising luxury of the Song Saa Private Island Resort.
