We think it’s fair to say that the town of Siem Reap belongs to one of the most popular ones in the world. It’s a small and super laidback place in the north of Cambodia and it has its own airport making it easy to reach. Siem Reap is the gateway to exploring the ancient temples of Angkor. And when you’re templed out, there is still so much more to see and do in the surrounding area. You can fill up a week here without getting bored. Also, the town itself turns into a charming place at night with many restaurants and bars to relax.
A stop many people skip, but truly a must see when you’re in Cambodia. The little town of Battambang is located only a 4-hour bus drive from Siem Reap. From visiting local villages and the Killing Caves to taking the funny bamboo train, there are a lot of things where you can fill days with. This is also the place where you can witness millions of bats flying out the cave every evening.
Phnom Pehn is the capital city of Cambodia but compared to Bangkok or any other big city in Asia, this city still has an authentic Asian feeling. Visit the incredible temples or the Silver Pagoda and walk along the riverside promenade by sunset or learn more about the shocking history behind the Tuol Sleng (S21) Museum and the Killing Fields. Phnom Pehn is definitely worth a visit.
Kampot is a lovely riverside village with many guesthouses, homestays, and hotels. In this cute little town are many things to do like exploring the area with a scooter, kayaking on the Kampor river, having dinner on a sunset cruise, visit a pepper farm or go hiking in the hills of Bokor National Park. Kampot has also many great restaurants and cozy bars for spending the nights.
This will probably the place where you take the ferry to the islands like Koh Rong/ Koh Rong Samloem. Sihanoukville is a place we didn’t liked that much but some people love it.
This small island is surrounded by turquoise blue waters, incredible coral reefs, tropical jungles, and white sandy beaches. Koh Rong has everything you need for a tropical vacation and it is the perfect getaway to relax on the beach.
