My husband and I will spend 13 nights in Cambodia in late Aug. I have traveled in SE Asia before (Laos, Thailand, Vietnam) but never Cambodia. Travel style is adventurous with mid-range hotels ($25-60 per night) and some nice meals thrown in. Below is a draft of an itinerary.
I could use some advice for things to do in the South. Is the weather ok that time of year?
An option is to take less time in the South and add a day or 2 in Siem Reap...
I appreciate any advice. ideas, or comments that you care to give me so that I can make this trip most memorable (eg, activities, restaurants, hotels, tours). Note: nothing has been booked yet, hotels listed are only an option.
Thanks so much!
