The magnificent legacy of the Khmer Empire is the highlight of any visit to Cambodia, most notably the UNESCO World Heritage listed temple complex of Angkor and its visually entrancing centrepiece, Angkor Wat.
Situated between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh is Battambang, which is known for its striking colonial architecture and the very basic Bamboo 'Train', set up by the locals to transport themselves and their goods. Phnom Penh is a captivating capital where broad tree-lined boulevards and colonial architecture provide an attractive backdrop to the colourful markets and bustling riverfront, while the coastal resort of Kep, which was founded as a retreat for the French elite in 1908, has a tranquil atmosphere and glorious beaches.
