After decades of upheaval, Cambodia has emerged as a poor but peaceful nation blessed with great natural beauty, hospitable inhabitants and some of the most awe-inspiring temple architecture in the world. Travelers who wish to experience contemporary life in Cambodia should spend two or three nights in the French-flavored capital of Phnom Penh. It is not a particularly extensive city, and most of the major sights — such as the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and National Museum of Cambodia — can conveniently be toured within one day. Siem Reap, the base for visiting Angkor Wat, has become a destination for visitors from all over the world; fortunately, it retains a degree of charm.
