These Photos Will Make You Want to Book a Cambodia Trip

With buzzing nightlife and tranquil retreats, there’s more to Cambodia than just Angkor Wat

Each month we highlight some of our favourite travel photos taken around the world – including some submitted by our readers. This month we’re flying to Phnom Penh. The vibrant Cambodian capital – and indeed, the whole nation –  proves that there’s far more to see than just Angkor Wat.
