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 such as Angkor Wat, much of it remains refreshingly untouristed emerging from the shadow of its violent Khmer Rouge past to offer a warm, unforgettable welcome. Use our map of Cambodia below to start planning your trip around this unique country.
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, or enjoy the sandy beaches and islands around Sihanoukville in the south. 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.
