Cambodia isn’t just Angkor Wat!

That’s what’s charming about it – one goes there for ancient temples and discovers friendly people, awesome food, marvelous beaches, the mighty Mekong, and much more!

Phnom Penh is the fastest-developing capital in Southeast Asia. It has leaped forward so far, it’s now a pretty, organized, clean city!

In the south, you can visit charming pepper-producing Kampot and enjoy the beaches on Koh Rong and Koh Rong Sanloem.

In the northeast, go for Irrawaddy Dolphin watching in Kratie.

In the west, Battambang offers a fresh and lively Cambodia without the crowds at Siem Reap. As traveling by train is now easy, I predict Battambang will become the next hot destination!

And of course, everybody knows that place and for a reason. The Angkor Wat Temple Complex is unlike anything else in the world!

Give Cambodia a go!
