After spending one whole year as a full-time travelling family (wahoo!!) and having spent 359 days of this in Southeast Asia, we thought we would look back on the good and the bad.
Kep rightly holds the title of being the crab capital of Cambodia and the truth be told, it is probably the capital of all seafood for the country.
After being in the large metropolitan capital of Phnom Penh we were all looking forward to spending some time at the beach. Both Sihanoukville (which I still can’t pronounce correctly) and Koh Rong Island fitted this bill perfectly.
Phnom Penh, built at the junction of the Mekong and Tonlé Sap rivers, is far and away Cambodia’s biggest city. It is a city with an ever-expanding population, evident by the large amount of construction of high rises throughout the region.
Without a doubt the main drawcard for visitors to Siem Reap, and Cambodia as a whole, is the famous Angkor ruins. For us, it was definitely the main reason for visiting and spending a week in Siem Reap.
