Ancient temples hidden amid lush green forests. Lakes, rivers and wetlands teeming with exotic birdlife. And a history that will leave you questioning the senseless brutality meted out on its population by dictator Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge. For such a small country, Cambodia is a truly stunning, diverse destination. The streets of the capital, Phnom Penh, throb with industry, while further north, the epic majesty of Angkor and its temples is an essential stop-off. Battambang has a languid vibe, while the chance to sail across the vast Tonle Sap Lake should not be passed up.
