This country is truly a reflection of the diversity that Asia boasts of. The paddy fields and forest life is a must exploring thing for all. As in Laos, many tribes are living in their authentic ways untouched by the modernization of the world.  One gets to experience the real Asian picture with monks walking and chanting prayers while plenty of foreign tourists take their pictures.

Asia has plenty of growing and developing countries. This means that many have good and cheap currency for travelers to enjoy it. The weather and greenery of Cambodia are similar to Vietnam and Laos. However, here the animal sanctuaries, national parks are a testament to the fact that people here are most caring and loving. The vibe of the locals here is extremely sweet and welcoming.

There is plenty of shopping for great clothes at dirt cheap prices. The variety of dorms, small hotels, and then big luxury hotels all can look upon while making one’s bookings against the budget.

Here as well one can easily spend one day at $25. Enjoy the temple of Bayon and other ones in Angkor. Their temples set in lush green fields are a sight to behold and remember for ages.

Also, the urban side of this country has become happening. One gets to party well in Siem Reap and there is a sprinkle of French architecture around the country reminding us of their colony era.
