Cambodia has seen a tourist boom in recent years, with rapidly expanding options. Famed for its temple complexes, diverse choices are available to those who want to explore. The Angkor Wat complex (Angkor Archeological Park), Preah Vihear, Beng Melea, Banteay Chhmar, Koh Ker, and Sambour Prey Kok are some of the more accessible options, but there are plenty more small and isolated temples.
In the unique Tonle Sap ecosystem, with one of only two rivers in the world that change direction seasonally, visitors can see stilt and floating villages, and visit the Prek Toal bird sanctuary.
Phnom Penh is the vibrant bustling capital of Cambodia and maintains considerable charm with plenty to see, with French colonial mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental architecture.
The Mekong region offers options to see the endangered Irrawaddy Dolphin, kayaking, and exploring from the bases of Kratie and Stung Treng.
The northern and eastern mountains provide a cooler get away. Rattanakiri has trekking options, and the crater lake near Banlung is popular. The Mondulkiri region is also a beautiful region to visit, and has an elephant conservation project.
To the south, Kampot and Kep are popular coastal destinations. They are both relaxed, sleepy towns, where you can hire a boat for a day of snorkeling or fishing. Popular islands off of Sihanoukville include Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloeng.
Common travel options are independent travel (or independent but booked day-tours), arrangements by a travel company, or group tours.
