ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Cambodia is one of Asia's most appealing destinations. In addition to its rich culture and history, the miles of unspoiled beaches, rivers, waterfalls and tropical forests are strong magnets for adventure travelers.

Major points-of-interest include the capital city of Phnom Penh and its Silver Pagoda, Royal Palace, and colorful markets; the temples of Angkor, one of the most astonishing architectural accomplishments on the planet, and the remains of the Kampot area, once the fashionable haunt of the French elite, and reportedly home to the tastiest seafood in the country.

Note: There is a heightened security threat to Westerners and Western interests throughtout Southeast Asia. Visitors should maintain a high level of personal security at all times.

It is strongly advised to avoid all travel to the Cambodian-Thai border area as there have been frequent clashes over a border dispute. These clashes have included gunfire and artillery exchanges resulting in several fatalities and evacuation of citizens. The presence of landmines has been reported.
