14 Days in Cambodia: Our Recommendations

  • 17 views

A 2-week trip to Cambodia offers enough time to get beneath the surface of the country and explore its lesser-known gems along with major highlights. Discover the ruins of the iconic Angkor Wat, the largest temple complex in the world and the masterpiece of Khmer architecture. Learn more about the Cambodian genocide at Tuol Sleng in Phnom Penh and spot Irrawaddy river dolphins as you cruise down the Mekong.

Having soaked up the highlights, head for beaches and nature reserves next. Kep, located in the country’s south, along with Sihanoukville are the premier beach destinations of the country. To the country’s northwest, near Siem Reap, is Phnom Kulen National Park, famous for its waterfalls. Check out our top two recommendations for 14 days in Cambodia below.
