Siem Reap, Cambodia
Siem Reap
Siem Reap is a charming town to visit, with old French shop-houses, shady tree-lined boulevards and a slow-flowing river. This is probably one of the most relaxed towns in Cambodia.

Sihanoukville, Cambodia
Sihanoukville offers long sandy beaches with snorkelling and diving opportunities. While here you can also visit Ream National Park, known for its untainted nature, tropical beaches, mangrove forests and dense jungle.

Kep, Cambodia
Kep is a great base if you like the sound of visiting deserted islands, fresh crab specialties and spectacular sunsets. If you want to see some of most beautiful Cambodia beaches, don't miss the islands Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island) or Koh Poh (Coral Island) accessible from Kep.

Battambang, Cambodia
Battambang is a rural town with lively market that people from all around come to visit to stock up on food. There are also various temples in the area.

Kratie, Cambodia
Kratie is known for being the home of the rare fresh water dolphin, the Irrawaddy. Since Kratie was spared during the war, it's also a good place to see historic Khmer houses situated on the edge of the Mekong.

Stung Treng, Cambodia
Stung Treng
This is a sleepy small town on the Mekong River in the Rattanakhiri province. Tourism here is still relatively underdeveloped, so although you may find it difficult to communicate in English, it's well worth it for that untainted feel.
