Never been to Cambodia... what's a MUST see?

by captainaaron »

Anybody been to Cambodia? It has a sad history, and is known for being a 3rd world place... but are there any gems/reasons to experience this unique place?

Angkok Wat is a must-see. You feel like Indian Jones discovering it in the jungle. It's a beautiful site and one of the best in the world. The food in Cambodia is fabulous too - similar to Thai food but gets absolutely no press.

Not only Angkor Wat, which is the largest, but Angkor Thom and Banteay Srei.  All fabulous, although Angkor Wat is the most famous and the largest.  I was in Cambodia as a pre trip to Thailand with Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT).  They do a great job of showing you the highlights.  We also visited a floating school on the Siem Reap river.  OAT has supported the school and provided an English teacher for 2 years.  You'll also visit the Killing Fields -- tough to see, but an important part of history.  If you do decide to take the trip with OAT and mention my traveler number 00401919A, you'll get $100.00 discount (and so will I).

The very large Tonle Sap Lake and Prek Toel Bird Sanctuary are near Siem Reap.  It is well worth a day to see the floating villages, the stilt villages, the local fishing way of life, and a bit if the indigenous wildlife. .http://www.canbypublications.com/siemreap/srtonlesap.htm
