Conveniently situated between the capital Phnom Penh, a short distance to the north, and the popular destinations of Kep and Kampot to the south, many visitors pass through Cambodia’s Takeo Province but, sadly, few stop. In our opinion – a big mistake. There are some excellent and varied spots to visit, to complement the better-known sites of Phnom Penh and…

Koh Tonsai or Rabbit Island lies just off the coast from Kep in the province of the same name – a 3-hour drive or so from Phnom Penh. Formerly known as Kep-sur-Mer, the popular and fashionable pre-Khmer Rouge seaside resort is currently experiencing something of a renaissance.

While the majority of the best-known and, of course, most frequently visited, Angkorean temples are situated in Siem Reap province and northwestern Cambodia, the well-preserved, hill-top sanctuary of Phnom Chisor, located in the opposite – southeastern – region of the country, is a reminder of the geographical extent of these fabulous ancient temples.

Ta Prom Tonle Bati; a very attractive, but rarely-visited Angkor-period temple a mere hour’s drive south of Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh. (Well traffic permitting that is.) Ta Prom is differentiated from it’s better-known namesake at Angkor, (of giant roots and Lara Croft fame) by the addition of ‘Tonle Bati’  – a scenic freshwater lake adjacent to the ruined temple. This…
