about Cambodia

With its low-key beach resorts, dense rainforest and mystical ancient temples, Cambodia is fast replacing Thailand and Vietnam as the South-East Asian destination du jour.

Sure, there are plenty of sobering reminders of the country’s dark past under the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, and much of the country is steeped in poverty, but that’s all the more reason to visit – to lift the veil on this unique corner of the world, discover the beauty of its wilderness and people, and explore far beyond famous Angkor Wat and the Killing Fields.

Pleasures include the seaside town of Sihanoukville and the deserted beaches which lie beyond it. Access lesser-known ancient temples at Kampong Thom. Hang about in the chilled river town of Kratie, where you can take in the vista of the Mekong and its endangered river dolphins. Cambodia is a country that may well tempt you to stay longer than you thought you would.
