Cambodia has only recently emerged from decades of isolation and the Khmer people are happy and welcoming. It is a country of chaotic sights, smells, sounds and tastes - there's as much adventure dodging the motorbikes as you cross the roads as you'll find on a pilgrimage to glorious and mysterious ancient temple city of Angkor Wat. In the middle of this dusty, colourful country, lies the giant freshwater Tonle Sap lake - the breathing heart of Cambodia - and south are empty tropical beaches. If you've been looking for a change from Thailand's tourism over-crowding, try a trip to Cambodia.
