Cambodia is a beautiful destination and there is so much to see.

Some people may find some of the living conditions confronting to observe, depending on what areas you travel to.

The best advice is to read through the 'top questions' over on the right to get a feeling about the top attractions, activities and gain some insider knowledge about what to see and do, or look out for, while in Cambodia.

Once you have read through some of the information on the forum, you will be able to decide how long you want to spend visiting temples, beaches or other areas. Your question about 'advice' is very very general, once you have more information, you will perhaps have more specific questions that can be answered here.

In addition to TripAdvisor other useful free resources are



As anywhere in South East Asia, it is essential to have comprehensive medical travel insurance that also covers repatriation in case of serious injury or illness. The traffic in particular is much less safe than in Europe.

Travelfish is a good website and as mentioned by the_good_soil_family wikitravel.

Failing that just read through the forum posts.

In 2012, we visited Vietnam with extension of one week in Cambodia. Our trip was organized by Vietnamese travel agent: Ethnies Mekong Travel. We really loved it. In April this year, we returned to Cambodia for a more adventurous tour: We were in Ranatakiri, Mondulkiri.... Really interesting but more '' difficult’’!

This time, we organized ourselves because we got good experience with Ethnies Travel Mekong.

You can contact this travel agent to have precise and free information.

you really don't need a travel agent to visit Cambodia - most of them know next to nothing about the country anyway.

the most up-to-date info is from posters on this forum so plan out a rough itinerary (using the websites already mentioned) and post it here for comments & help.
