Many of Cambodia’s biggest draws are accessible via the country’s sprawling waterways, and this is a pleasant way of traveling around. Pass through Phnom Penh, the colonial capital, on a cruise along the Mekong, or negotiate the floating maze of houses on Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake, the Tonle Sap. From here you can reach Siem Reap, an old market town and gateway to the temples of Angkor.
Whether traveling by small speedboat or larger cruiser you’re afforded a wonderful perspective of everyday life in Cambodia.
