Cambodia is renowned for the vast Buddhist temple complex of Angkor Wat, set deep in the jungles of the north, but offers many riches beyond the temple. The floating fishing villages of Tonle Sap Lake are fascinating. Phnom Penh has a genocide tourism experience that will literally stop you in your tracks to reassess life. Ubiquitous food markets are particularly inviting, as you can eat your way through the country and immerse yourself in local culture. The country is ideally combined with neighboring Vietnam and, if time allows, Laos and Thailand.
