Tourism is the second-largest contributor to the Cambodian economy, after textile production. The economics allow prices to be extremely cheap, so it’s a great budget destination.
Popular tourist destinations include the legendary Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap, beach resorts in Sihanoukville, the small village of Battambang (a waystation for hikers and backpackers), Kampot and Kep near Bokor Hill Station, and the capital, Phnom Phen.
The main geographic features include many inland waterways, the beautiful beaches, waterfalls, forests and rainforests, grassy plains, and lowland features such as flood plains, rice paddy fields, and wetlands. This diversity means there is a great deal of plant and animal life in Cambodia, much of it found in the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve, another popular destination.
Active holiday adventure seekers can enjoy hiking and backpacking, a very popular tourist activity in Cambodia. This provides a perfect opportunity to get a sense of the various climates and regions of the country, enjoy the sights, wildlife, culture, and people.
Bicycling through many of the areas of the country is also quite popular, and bicycle-based tours are readily available.
Due to the large number of rivers, lakes, and other water features, rafting, kayaking, and boating opportunities are quite numerous.
And then, of course, the beaches provide an opportunity for snorkelling, swimming, and other water sports.
Really, Cambodia is perfect for outdoor adventure travel, whatever your particular pleasure!
