Most famous for the incredible temples of Angkor, Cambodia also has some great beaches, islands and city life too. Use Travelhappy’s Cambodia map to plan your journey
Angkor Wat is the world’s largest religious structure, but it’s just one breathtaking temple amongst hundreds scattered across northwestern Cambodia. Orientate yourself with the Angkor Quick Guide for tips on the best temples to see and how to avoid the crowds. Read up on Angkor history for a better sense of what it all means.
- Siem Reap
Siem Reap is the nearest city to Angkor, and as such is crammed with hotels and guesthouses while still retaining some small town charm. The FCC Angkor remains my favourite Siem Reap hotel. There are plenty of great cheap hotels in Siem Reap too.
- Phnom Penh
Chaotic, vibrant, beautiful, messy – Cambodia’s capital city Phnom Penh is an overload of extremes well worth exploring
Cambodia’s premier beach town, Sihanoukville has several stretches of sand where you can chill out, plus islands just off shore for that castaway vibe. Plenty of cheap hotel options too.
Famed for its picturesque river, Kampot is all about lazy days by the water. Bokor Mountain is nearby if you feel like exploring.
Battambang is a major trading hub, best accessed by tourists via the spectacularly scenic river trip from Siem Reap. The riverfront is also the heart of the city.
The border crossing point between Cambodia and Thailand, Poipet is not a place to linger for long if you can avoid it. See the Wikivoyage page for info on scams to avoid etc
The increasingly rare pink dolphins of Kratie are the main attraction of this riverside town, with bird-watching and trekking opportunities too
