Cambodia   

A small but important destination that will leave a lasting impression on any traveler.  After many heartwrenching and tumultous years, Cambodia is now redefining itself. It's a country with a rich, vibrant culture, scenic beauty and friendly people.  Most noted for the spectacularly stunning temples of Angkor, the former capital of the Khmer Empire, this quiet country is slowly opening up to much more to discover.  A visit should include time in the country's bustling capital city of Phnom Penh, some time on the Mekong River, and if you like quiet but beautiful beach time, then go to Kep and/or Kampot.  The pace of life is slow in Cambodia so come prepared to unwind.
