Most first-time travelers to Cambodia will opt out for a trip like this – most of the time will be spent in exploring Angkor Wat then a flash trip to the capital Phnom Penh. Experiencing the magnificent of Angkor and the idyllic charm of Phnom Penh allows first-time travelers the opportunity to see two centers of the Cambodian nation.
In a short trip to Cambodia like this the two main destination will appear at your first list – both of which are conveniently connected by boat, road and air – but there is wide range of options for side-trips and extensions. Both Siem Reap and Phnom Penh have international airports, so if you don’t have time, then firstly book fly in and out of the country. Those with more time can overland in and out of the country – Cambodia also has overland borders with all of its neighbor countries.
