Cambodia has a rich and proud culture, a charming French-era capital and impressive natural scenery. Angkor Wat is a must see; this ancient temple is the best-preserved temple in the UNESCO world-heritage site of Angkor, the 12th Century capital city and has become a symbol for Cambodia, appearing on the national flag. Phnom Penh, the capital, is a shining example of French colonialism and is still home to many original instances of colonial architecture and culture. The Mekong River, which dominates the landscape around it, is particularly stunning and the Tonlé Sap, the lake that the Mekong runs into, is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. The rural and coastal life of the rest of the country is an inspiration for any traveller. To experience Cambodia’s coastline and beaches, head to the charming fishing village of Kep, a relaxing weekend getaway for the wealthy living in Phnom Penh or a hidden private island.
