Beyond the highlights of Phnom Penh lies countryside filled with rice-paddies en route to Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor. By torchlight, creep through the little-used eastern gate in a jungle immersed in darkness to come upon dawn’s first rays shining down upon the amazing Angkor Wat. Visit the ancient temples of Sambour Prei Kuk and float on a remote section of Tonle Sap Lake.
