Cambodia is a small country with a lot to say! Steeped in history and home to some of the friendliest people you will meet in all of South East Asia. There are plenty of reasons why Cambodia attracts millions of visitors each year and it is definitely a "must see" country on any backpacking trip in South East Asia.

Sharing borders with Vietnam to the east, Laos to the north, Thailand to the west, and the ocean coast to the southwest, Cambodia is an incredible country with so much to see and do. From ancient ruins and legendary temples from the Khmer Empire of Angkor, to a country of white sandy beaches and thick jungle canopies, much of the Cambodia remains refreshingly untouched and, in many places, still largely undiscovered by tourists.

From the lively mix of colonial and Asian influences in Phnom Penh and world wonder of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, to the quiet riverside town of Kampot and the stunning beaches of Koh Rong Samloem. Cambodia really has something for everyone, see for yourself in the vid below.
