Cambodia

If you’re planning a trip to Southeast Asia or specifically Cambodia then this is the post for you.

Overview

Cambodia is a fun and exciting country to visit and travel. There’s a few major themes and sites to see: Angkor Wat (and other temple ruins in the area), the genocide, the jungle, and the beaches.

To be honest, when I was boarding my flight from Hong Kong to Vietnam, I was a little apprehensive. Planning Vietnam isn’t as easy as some other destinations, such as Hong Kong, Thailand, or even China.
