Travel tips to Siem Reap and Angkor Wat:
Cambodia has everything to offer for tourists and adventurers. The country's rich history is definitely it's biggest potential. Visit Angkor Wat and Siem Reap for the magical remains of the Angkor Wat temple complex. These temples are the only proof of the rich Khmer culture that dominated South East Asia during centuries.
Travel tips to Phnom Penh and the Killing Fields:
For a more recent and much sadder part of Cambodia's history, the country's capital Phnom Penh is a must visit. There you will find plenty of musea and landmarks to remember the brutal domination of the 'Khmer Rouge' and 'Pol Pot' who destabilized the country during the 70's. Until this very day the wonderful people of Cambodia still suffer from this dark past. Proof of this are the many handicaped people, orphanages and poverty in general. Tourism is the only way out of poverty for most Cambodians. So please consider visiting their magical country which is definitely one of the most beautiful in South East Asia.
