The fantastic beaches like Occheuteal Beach in the coastal town of Sihanoukville (named after the former king Norodom Sihanouk) in the south of Cambodia with its mixture of tropical beaches and lively nightlife are partly incredibly beautiful. Due to favorable prices and lack of mass tourism, the city has developed into a popular backpacker and emigrant mecca, but is also a popular excursion destination for locals. However, all other tourists are welcome and can feel comfortable here due to the prevailing tropical climate (year-round summer temperatures between 25 and 35 degrees) with perfect conditions for beach tourists and sun worshipers. For sports enthusiasts the surrounding area is perfect for activities such as diving or trekking.
But also the country Cambodia becomes increasingly popular as a destination in Southeast Asia. For decades the kingdom has been luring with its cultural heritage such as Angkor Wat and the Palace of the King in the capital Phnom Penh International visitors.
