With an abundance of historical cultures and tropical terrains, not so many Cambodian people actually have the chance to visit all the tourism destinations that their own nation has to offer. Besides some of the temples and certain seaside areas, only a small number of Cambodians have ever fully experienced Cambodia’s virgin wilderness, until now.
From the undiscovered waterfalls deep inside the dense jungles, to the far-flung tiny islands off the coast of Sihanoukville and Koh Kong Province, Cambodia’s tourism destinations are growing in popularity with the domestic market.
Following the relative peace established in the late 1990s, the concept of travel for leisure has reemerged in Cambodian culture. Destinations within a short proximity to Phnom Penh have become prime targets for tourism operators, particularly as transport links have developed.
