Let me just say: I LOVED Cambodia. It was beautiful, friendly and welcoming and, for anyone who has travelled to South East Asia before, Cambodia doesn’t have the same, ‘been there, done that’ feel that much more popular countries, like Thailand and Vietnam, can sometimes have.
As well as being ‘less touristy’, Cambodia is also much less populated than its larger neighbours. Wherever we went, people were open and engaging, trying to ‘chat’ to us even though they spoke no English and we spoke no Khmer. Even our guide, Mr Sinn, who soon became a friend and was hugely likeable and charming, still found things to point out whilst wandering around Angkor Wat, even though has said he had visited the temples ‘over 1,000 times’.
