Cambodia in pictures - Phnom Penh
In brief +
Located in the southern part of mainland Southeast Asia and bordered by Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, Cambodia is a haven of peace in the midst of nature. The heart and soul of Cambodia are found within the majestic ruins of Angkor. As a UNESCO world heritage site, these stunning temples are the country's main draw for tourists but there is more to this remarkable destination than meets the eye. From the charming town of Siem Reap and bustling capital of Phnom Penh to the idyllic sandy beaches and tiny islands that fringe the south coast, Cambodia brims with dream scenery. Better still is its gracious and most admirable population. Despite their suffering during the immense political instability and mass genocide perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge during the late 1970s, their warmth will fill you with admiration and affection.
If you're looking to experience life outside of the tourist trail, Cambodia offers a great deal. The Mekong River which runs down from its northern neighbour, Laos, is quite remarkable, inhabited by some of the last remaining fresh water dolphins in the region. To the North East immerse yourself in a world of wild waterfalls, clear volcanic lakes and mountainous landscapes in the Ratanakiri Province.
