Cambodia has seen its fair share of poverty, death and destruction with the ruling of the Khmer Rouge. The country has slowly started to recover, pulling up land mines, showing off its historical attractions such as Angkor Wat and educating visitors about the plight of the Cambodian people during the massacres of the 1970s.
Cambodia has no national airline, although other low-cost budget airlines have started up in the past five years and fly to and from the area. Airlines include Angkor Airlines, PMTair, Royal Phnom Penh Airways, President Airlines and more. Examine flight safety records before booking a ticket, as some of these airlines have questionable records. Low cost carriers visiting Cambodia include Jetstar Asia Airways.
Top attractions in Cambodia include architectural and anthropological wonder Angkor Wat, the important prison Tuol Sleng and the horrific killing fields. For more information on Cambodia, check out check out BootsnAll’s Cambodia Travel Guide.
