Cambodia, in contrast with Vietnam was welcoming and friendly. While they had as little as the Vietnamese and had also suffered incredible losses. I found they had somehow managed to be positive and proud of what they have left. It was a breath of fresh air and an immense emotional relief.
Our whirlwind tour included many of the most renowned temples, many amazing restaurants, entertaining experiences with locals, and evenings escaping from the heat. While there are many destinations higher on my list, I would happily return.
