Cambodia Top Destinations

Ancient temples, empty beaches, mighty rivers, remote forests … and (outside Angkor) only a handful of tourists. But the word is out – Cambodia has emerged from the decades of war and isolation that made it a byword for atrocities, refugees, poverty and political instability.

KEP

Kep was Cambodia’s premier beach town, drawing holiday-makers to its breezy shores and nearby Bokor Hill Station.
