Cambodia travel guide

4.1
Ruins · Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites
For over six centuries, the mighty Khmer Empire flourished in Cambodia, a scenic land of majestic temples, pristine waterfalls, and dense jungles. A protectorate of France between 1863 and 1953, the country suffered under the Khmer Rouge, a ruling party remembered mostly for its part in organizing the bloody Cambodian genocide of the 1970s. Today, a trip to Cambodia will reveal the region's troubled history, but also some of Southeast Asia's most significant archaeological sites. Few tourist attractions in Cambodia match the splendor of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage-listed temple complex that represents the biggest religious monument on the planet.

Sihanoukville travel guide

3.2
Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Spas & Wellness
Sihanoukville, a relatively new city built around the country's first deepwater port, has been developing into a tourist destination in recent years. The civil war brought about a major disruption in the town's planning, building, and prosperity, and only recently has it started to regain control of its own destiny. Still relatively austere and unattractive in the center, Sihanoukville's appeal comes from its vast stretches of sandy coastline, with numerous small beach towns drawing visitors in with their sometimes relaxed, sometimes hedonistic vibe. Offshore islands provide additional vacation ideas in Sihanoukville.
