My 4 favorite places of Cambodia

Traveling in Cambodia

I love traveling .... also in Cambodia. Most tourists going to Cambodia visit only Siem Reap and not see the rest of Cambodia. I have been now about 10 times in Cambodia but did never go to Siem Reap. But I have some other favourite places in Cambodia :

1. Battambang, Cambodians second largest city and famous for its colonial heritage and of course the pre-Angkor sites nearby. I like the village atmosphere, the colonial buildings and the good French food.

2. Phnom Penh, although a bit a tourist area I do like the riverside boulevard, the good restaurants and the 24h a day street life. Just start walking and look around. I like the Russian market. It is like Bangkok 30 years ago, the more I come in PP the more I like it. But now in 2021 PP is slowly changing in a kind of Bangkok.

3. Kampong Chhnang, the town itself it not nice but the "river-side" area with the market and the floating village of Vietnamese ethnics is truly amazing. And it makes a good stop-over for the over land tour from PP to Siem Reap.

4. Sihanoukvill, living along the beach in Cambodia. OK there are better beaches but I did spend 3 lovely days here and it was more or less on my way back to Thailand. Now in 2021 I think this place is totally destroyed by Chinese tourism.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
