    Cambodia

    Major Tourist Attractions: Angkor Wat, Bayon, Angkor Thom, Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, Preah Vihear Temple, Royal Palace in Phnom Penh

    Traveling to Cambodia can be at times joyful, stressful, beautiful, and heartbreaking (sometimes all at once), all of which make it a can't miss country.

    Cambodia is a country with a glorious ancient history and a terrible recent history. The cognitive dissonance between the beautiful and sprawling ancient temples and the desolate destruction of the Killing Fields is hard to wrap your mind around. This, and so many other things, make Cambodia not only interesting, but extremely important, to visit.

    The biggest draw for visitors to Cambodia is Siem Reap and the enormous Angkor Wat temple complex nearby. There is more to the country however, including beautiful, less-crowded-than-Thailand beaches and the buzzing city of Phnom Penh. The shadow of the Khmer Rouge still looms large, and visitors can honor it by visiting the Killing Fields and the S-21 torture museum.

    Cambodia is a very poor country, and crime against tourists, primarily muggings and pickpocketing are a real problem. That said, the tourism industry is very important to the Cambodian economy, and there are many establishments, both cheap and upscale that cater exclusively to western tourists. Travel in Cambodia is very inexpensive, and luxury can be had for very little, although visitors should constantly be on the lookout to avoid local exploitation.

    In the end traveling to Cambodia can be at times joyful, stressful, beautiful, and heartbreaking (sometimes all at once), all of which make it a can't miss country.

    • Watch the sunrise over the temples of Angkor Wat.
    • Relax on a white sand beach in Kep or Sihanoukville.
    • Pay your respects at the Khmer Rouge's most notorious prison, S-21.
    • Sample french-infused cuisine like frog legs and fried tarantula.
    • Play frogger with the insane and hectic traffic in Phnom Penh.
    • Splurge on a $2 foot massage after a long day of walking.
    • Chat with the locals and hear their war stories.
