A small country with a wealth of history and blessed with some of the world’s most enigmatic temples, Cambodia definitely deserves a place in the big leagues. Cambodia on a Shoestring kicks off in the bright lights of Bangkok and will weave you through colourful Cambodia over 10 days, witnessing the magnificent Angkor Wat temple complex, the historic yet sombre site of the Killing Fields, Sihanoukville’s glittering turquoise waters, the incredible Mekong Delta and rounds it all off with the charm and bustle of Ho Chi Mink City.
