Cambodia has taken its place as one of the world's top destinations. While the ruins of the ancient Khmer capital around Angkor Wat are truly one of the wonders of the world, there's much more to Cambodia than that. You can easily spend weeks, or months, exploring all that the country has to offer, from bustling seaside resorts to virgin rainforests.
While the splendors of Angkor Wat will understandably be the focus of any visit to Cambodia, set aside some time to spend in the laid-back charms of the country's capital, Phnom Penh. Sihanoukville is the main beach resort, but if you want something less frenetic and more atmospheric, try the old French get-away of Kep, or the old riverside port town of Kampot.
