Places to see:

  • Angkor Archaeological Park — home of the imposing ruins of ancient Khmer civilization.

  • Kampong Cham — nice countryside village on the Mekong river and good place to meet real Cambodia.
  • Kep — a seaside area which predates Sihanoukville as the main beach resort in Cambodia; slowly being re-discovered by travelers.
  • Krek — a small village on the backpacker trail between Kratie and Kampong Cham.
  • Koh Ker — more ancient ruins, north of Angkor.
  • Poipet — horrible border town, but you must get through it if you want to visit Angkor over land from Thailand.
  • Preah Vihear — cliff-top temple pre-dating Angkor.
  • Tonle Sap Lake — huge lake with floating villages and Southeast Asia's premier bird sanctuary.
