Things to do in Cambodia

Travelers will be hard pressed to run out of things to do in Cambodia. The Southeast Asian nation is jam-packed with adventures, from exploring the ancient Khmer temples to haggling with local merchants in one of Phnom Penh’s numerous outdoor markets, to sampling Cambodia’s adventurous local cuisine.

Nature-lovers wondering what to do in Cambodia will be met with a range of options. There are hikes through the mountainous jungle terrain, barge floats up the Mekong River where it’s possible to spot groups of endangered river dolphins and motorcycle tours through some of the country’s more remote areas.

Despite the many outdoor things to do in Cambodia, no trip to the country is complete without a thorough sampling of its indigenous cuisine. Foodies wondering what to do in Cambodia are in luck: The country, especially the capital city of Phnom Penh, boasts a lively culinary scene, including numerous quality Cambodian restaurants along with a number of French, Indian, Chinese, Fusion and International establishments.
