Cambodia is a beautiful place for a holiday.
Cambodia is located in the southern portion of the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. There are just over 15 million people in the country with the Majority living in Phnom Penh.
Sadly, compared to it’s Asian neighbours the country still struggles for growth and many people living here are genuinely poor.
It does though have a vibrant tourism economy with more than 2 million visitors per annum. The majority of those head to the Siem Reap region which houses Angkor Wat, the next largest tourist destination is the capital itself, Phnom Penh.
There are other regions to see.
If you fancy a swim then Sihanoukville in the south west which has several popular beaches is for you. Or perhaps head up to the sleepy riverside town of Battambang in the north west.
It will come as no surprise that both these destinations are popular with backpackers, beautiful surroundings at low cost always will be!
There is though always a serious side to any holiday, whether you are a backpacker or a family. things can go wrong and in poorer countries they can go wrong faster and be harder to fix or treat. This is why on a trip to Cambodia travel insurance is a must.
