15 Best Places to Visit in Cambodia

NOTE; Check before going for their Covid restrictions


he home of the famous Angkor Wat is unquestionably one of Cambodia’s must-see places.

Unfortunately, thanks to the legendary pagodas and vine-dressed stupas that are tagged by UNESCO, it’s also one of the busiest spots in the country.

Still, it’s definitely worth braving the crowds and hopping out of Siem Reap for a spell to see this world wonder.

Encompassed by wetland rice paddies and dense jungles, it emerges from the canopy in a medley of historic Khmer towers and enchanting erstwhile Hindu shrines.

Today, it’s the chants of Buddhist monks and gasping travelers that dominates, as they weave between the intricate base reliefs and the great sandstone sculptures of mythic beasts.


Sihanoukville is Cambodia’s answer to the backpacker beach towns of Thailand just across the gulf.

A ramshackle place of tin-roofed hostels and bamboo beer bars spilling onto the sands, it oozes a laid-back vibe that’s a welcome break from the country’s other urban centers.

The beaches are the place to be both day and night, with the establishments of Ochheuteal offering loungers and water sports aplenty.

For something a little quieter, you could also make a beeline around the headlands to less-trodden Otres Beach, or pay the entry fee for secluded Sokha Beach nearby.
