With its extraordinary Angkor-era temples and time-lost floating villages, its castaway island beaches and jungle-swathed mountains, Cambodia is a small country that makes a huge impact. And despite the fame of its headline attractions, much of it remains refreshingly untouristed emerging from the shadow of its violent Khmer Rouge past to offer a warm, unforgettable welcome.

Cambodia boasts an astonishing array of wildlife: watch rare Irrawaddy dolphins frolic in the Mekong River; spot yellow-cheeked gibbons in Ratanakiri; or take a stroll with elephants in Mondulkiri.
Explorers can clamber through Beng Mealea’s atmospheric, creeper-clad temple ruins, which are still relatively unexplored. Feast on Kampot pepper crab at Kep’s vibrant market, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, snack on crispy edible spiders, a speciality in the town of Skuon.
