Travel — Asia
Far East/Southeast Asia
"As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life"
Cambodia is one of the most fascinating (and less-touristy) destinations in Southeast Asia. Located in the southwestern part of the Indochina peninsula, Cambodia is bordered by Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and the Gulf of Thailand.
Angkor is one of Southeast Asia's most important archaeological sites — its vast temple complex is home to the world-famous ancient Temple of Angkor Wat — one of Cambodia's most visited tourist destinations. Book Angkor Wat & Royal Temples Sightseeing Tours.
The ancient Buddhist walled city of Angkor Thom, located just north of Angkor Wat, is another popular attraction — it is houses Bayon Temple, famous for its massive stone-carved figures and faces.

Visitors are also drawn to Ta Prohm, one of Angkor's largest ancient sites. The Buddhist temple ruins, surrounded by jungle, features stone carvings, towering trees and unique intertwining root formations. It was also the site of Angelina Joie's 2001 movie "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider."
Feeling hungry and adventurous... try the crispy deep-fried insects (crickets, tarantulas, beetles, grasshoppers) at the local Central Market on a fun Phnom Penh Tour — these tasty snacks are considered a delicacy to the locals.
