Cambodia’s main claim to tourist fame is the network of awe-inspiring twelfth century temples of Angkor—but there are plenty of more awesome things to do in Cambodia. Increasingly, travellers are discovering the country’s other wonders, like jungles, wildlife and islands. Cambodia is one of Southeast Asia’s poorest countries and, although there are shams, there are many reputable non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that tourists can engage with. As the nation emerges from an all-too-recent history of genocide at the hands of the Khmer Rouge, the Cambodian spirit seems irrepressible, and visitors will find welcoming smiles wherever they explore.
