Cambodia is a country of mystery, ancient history, and natural wonder. Due to its troubled history, the emerging Southeast Asian country still falls under the radar of many international travelers, but this is quickly changing. Those familiar with Cambodia probably still associate the country with the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat — perhaps as a one-off destination touring through Southeast Asia — or the historical capital of Phnom Penh.
However, Cambodia is much more than its history — ancient or recent. The extraordinary natural beauty of Cambodia is astounding, especially on the Gulf of Thailand coast, the tropical islands off the coast, and under its crystal-clear waters.
While Cambodia hasn’t yet become the international diving hotspot of Thailand, the diving scene is growing quickly, making it easier for international divers to visit.
