Phnom Penh is the vibrant bustling capital of Cambodia. Situated at the confluence of three rivers, the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and the great Tonle Sap, what was once considered the 'Gem' of Indochina. The capital city of Cambodia still maintains considerable charm with plenty to see. It exudes a sort of provincial charm and tranquillity with French colonial mansions and tree-lined boulevards amidst monumental Angkorian architecture. Phnom Penh is whatever you need it to be. It can be the gracious host, showing off its points of historic and cultural interests like a regal aunty. It can be a family destination, with comfortable and affordable accommodation and locals who fuss over children and have a smile for everyone. Read more

Siem Reap is the accidental tourist town. A not so small town that in fact has more residents than it appears to have, it's claim to fame is that it happens to be located a few kilometers from Angkor Wat, a huge temple complex that boasts several of the world's most significant ancient structures, as well as dozens, perhaps hundreds of lesser monuments. These temples were mostly built between the 9th and 13th centuries and are some of the most amazing monuments from antiquity on this planet. The centerpiece of this is Angkor Wat, the world's largest religious structure and the only manmade structure in the world that has the honor of adorning its own nation's flag. Read more
Sihanoukville province is a very small southern province of Cambodia. The capital sits on a peninsula with beaches and tropical islands around. Sihanoukville - also known as Kampong Som - was founded in 1964 to be the only deep-water port in whole Cambodia. Now it is gradually being re-invented as a tourist attraction, but despite the promise of massive investment - a casino is planned for Naga Island - tourist numbers are still fairly low. Although its nice snow white beaches and several paradise islands have made it popular as a tourist destination. Whilst some people love it, it’s hard to adore. It’s got most of Cambodia ’s best beaches, but one can somehow not call it a beautiful area. Read more
