Laos travel guide

3.9
Waterfalls · Landmarks · Mountains
Long overlooked by travelers due to its reputation as one of the world's poorest nations, Laos is drawing a growing number of visitors with its laid-back charm, natural beauty, and numerous archaeological sites and historic temples. Many visitors make the trip to Laos from nearby Thailand, combining the two neighboring countries into one memorable experience of Southeast Asia. Others focus their Laos vacation on the Mekong River, which serves as a major source of irrigation for local farms and represents a popular alternative for sightseeing by car. On top of the rich cultural heritage and impressive natural landscapes, its major treasure remains its people--friendly and devout Buddhists welcoming visitors with a genuine hospitality rarely felt in other parts of the world.

Cambodia travel guide

4.1
For over six centuries, the mighty Khmer Empire flourished in Cambodia, a scenic land of majestic temples, pristine waterfalls, and dense jungles. A protectorate of France between 1863 and 1953, the country suffered under the Khmer Rouge, a ruling party remembered mostly for its part in organizing the bloody Cambodian genocide of the 1970s. Today, a trip to Cambodia will reveal the region's troubled history, but also some of Southeast Asia's most significant archaeological sites. Few tourist attractions in Cambodia match the splendor of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage-listed temple complex that represents the biggest religious monument on the planet.

Sihanoukville travel guide

3.1
Sihanoukville, a relatively new city built around the country's first deepwater port, has been developing into a tourist destination in recent years. The civil war brought about a major disruption in the town's planning, building, and prosperity, and only recently has it started to regain control of its own destiny. Still relatively austere and unattractive in the center, Sihanoukville's appeal comes from its vast stretches of sandy coastline, with numerous small beach towns drawing visitors in with their sometimes relaxed, sometimes hedonistic vibe. Offshore islands provide additional vacation ideas in Sihanoukville.
