3. Banteay Chmmar

If you want to explore the Indiana Jones style temple a bit, you won't be able to defeat Banteay Chmmara. This mammoth temple complex is located in the surrounding jungle in the lonely northwest of Cambodia, which provides a great opportunity to discover the most important places without the crowds.

It was built by 12th century Angkorian King Jayawarman VII, and the magnificent stone reliefs along its walls are some of the most intricate details you will see in the country. In particular, the impressive bas-reliefs depicting Avalokiteshvara on the south wall and the dizzying array of battle scenes depicted on the east walls are striking examples of Angkorian art.

4. Ratanakiri

If you're here for the full Mekong experience, you've come to the right place at right time. Located along the shores of the mighty Mekong, Kratie has become a major destination for travelers thanks to its dolphin watching tours. Endangered Irrawaddy dolphins are endemic to the Mekong, and environmental measures have now been introduced to help reduce their numbers.

Tourism has played a great role in trying to protect and conserve the dolphins by offering an alternative economy for fishing. To see the dolphins head to Campi, north of Cratie, where there are many boat excursions.

6. Beaches of Sihanoukville

In the province of Compong Som, Sihanoukville is a story of two halves, with a lively but gloomy central area and its coastline, home to a lively beach resort. The beaches here are the main holiday destination of Cambodia for relaxing in the sand and sun and are popular with local and foreign tourists.

Not far from the south coast of Cambodia lie many islands, as beautiful as their Thai counterparts in the west, but much less visited. Compared to the now highly developed islands of Samui and Phuket, the islands of Cambodia are part of a tranquil tropical bliss, where the sun and sand are the mainstay, and large resorts have not yet left their mark.

Of all the islands, Koh Rong Samloem is one of the most beautiful, with a long sandy bay of Saracen, home to a dozen resort beach huts that offer a friendly break from the world. Here everything is actually connected with a hammock, but for more active many underwater activities are offered.
