CAMBODIA TRAVEL GUIDE – BEFORE DEPARTURE


 
1: INTRODUCTION TO CAMBODIA
Cambodia is one of the three countries in Indochina (Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia) and might be one of the smallest countries in South East Asia. The country is one the most highlights of the region.
Approximately 2 million tourists visit the country each year. Most visitors fly to Siem Reap, visit the Angkor Temples and then leave the country. However, your travel plan can be filled with a lot more fantastic natural beauty and historic temples in the country. Natural attractions range from national parks filled with minerals, exotic fauna, to the lovely beach of Sihanoukville- a laid back Asian beach vibe, golden sands and opaque waters to those seeking solace, away from the chaotic cities. The intrepid may seek out the hill tribal region of Mondulkiri or Rantanakiri, the sleepy conservation village of Chi Phat, the isolated temples of Preah Vihear and Banteay Chhmar, and the lesser travelled areas of Kampot or Kep.
