Cambodia is a country that in many ways is still recovering from the effects of its very brutal recent history. The reverberations caused by Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime are still very clearly being felt today. And yet despite this, it's a country that feels filled with hope.

The coastline and surrounding islands are characterised by their largely unspoilt beaches, lush green jungles and chilled out atmosphere. It's the perfect place to take a load off and get some serious relaxation in.

And then of course there's Angkor Wat, the largest religious complex in the world. Mystical, ancient and absolutely vast, the ruins of these temples just beg to be explored.
