Most travellers to Cambodia will cite the temple complex at Angkor, and more likely Angkor Wat itself, as being the reason they pack their bags for the country. Indeed, some 50 per cent of visitors make a beeline to Siem Reap, the gateway to exploring the temples. Even so, Cambodia has so much more for you to experience.
The French left a charming architectural legacy that the Khmer Rouge miraculously did not destroy, and Cambodia has many beautiful natural spots as well as interesting cultural sites and sights, both religious and secular. Like most Southeast Asian people, the Cambodians are unassuming, modest and extremely welcoming – something that many foreign visitors greatly appreciate when they face a language barrier.
