Nestled between Thailand and Vietnam is Cambodia, a relatively unexplored country compared to its neighbours with a long history that is both inspiring and harrowing in equal measures. Think ancient temples begging to be explored, an incredibly beautiful coastline, and some of the friendliest locals you'll ever meet.
Cambodia is a country with a long history and an endless number of natural wonders to see. Siem Reap is a tiny town grown large due to its proximity to Angkor. It’s best to explore the temples very early in the morning (try for sunrise if you are intrepid) and at dusk, when temperatures (and crowds) are less oppressive. During the day, you can either relax by the hotel pool, visit the small but booming Old Quarter, or take off on a fun adventure like quad biking, or visiting a local school or floating village. Phnom Penh is the political centre of Cambodia. While often overlooked by travellers on a tight schedule, it offers up incredible colonial and art deco architecture, palaces, a booming riverside boardwalk and dark but informative historical areas like Tuol Sleng Prison and the Killing Fields. If you have the extra time, it is definitely worth a stop.
In Cambodia’s prime (and most visited) regions, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, there’s an excellent range of accommodation from small to medium sized hotels, and traditional to contemporary design. You can slip into luxury at a reasonable price, or you can dive in at absolute top dollar. Once you get outside of the prime destinations, however, accommodation gets significantly simpler.
