Pulau Perhentian Kecil, Besut, Terengganu, Malaysia
A visit to the Perhentian Islands is a must if you find yourself in Malaysia and want some beach time! If you want a nice quaint island stay on Perhentian Besar. If you are looking for more action then stay on Perhentian Kecil, but even Kecil is...

Sangkat Boeng Keng Kang Ti Pir, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
I have never seen architecture so remarkable before in my life. It really did take my breath away. To someone from the West, it just seemed otherworldly.

BKK1, 18 400, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
The Anise Villa is the perfect oasis in the middle of the hot, bustling city. The rooms (and bathrooms!) are modern, clean, and comfortable, the pool area is beautiful, and the food well-prepared and tasty. In addition, the staff is extremely...

Khan Chamkarmorn, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Don't worry, I did sample traditional Khmer and Cambodian food in Phnom Penh but a friend who used to live there highly recommended Yumi and I'm so glad we took her advice. Set in a restored red lacquered shop house, Yumi's barbecue ribs, pumpkin...

Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Ok, so I guess running along the Mekong river in Pnomh Penh in the mid day heat isn't the most sensible thing, swerving tuk tuks and motorbikes and avoiding the incredulous looks from locals at the crazy European woman running when she could be...

#9B Street 29, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
With more than 40 different plant species in its garden, Botanico GastroBar feels like an urban jungle. The new cafe serves excellent coffee along with homemade sugarcane rolls with anise and feta. At night, a stylish crowd comes for the globally...

Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Unlike some of the other places you will visit throughout Asia, the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh actually has a King living in it. Constructed in the 1860's, the palace has been the home to all royalty since, with exception to the time around the...

Sangkat Phsar Kandal Ti Pir, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
As a native Texan I never expected to find an iconic Cadillac Bar in Cambodia. The place doesn't follow the menu exactly but the spirit is the same. Delicious.

277, Preah Sisowath Quay, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
We really enjoyed happy hour at The Quay. The rooftop bar has beautiful views of the riverfront, with a balmy breeze to keep you cool. Cocktails (2 for 1) were delicious, featuring fresh fruit juices. Service was friendly.

The Plantation hotel opened up in late 2011 just down the street from my house. It's great for lots of reasons: rooms and facilities are spread across several historical buildings that were slated for demolition (and saved by this project),...

Phnom Penh, Cambodia
She is blind in one eye and very sweet. I went here 3 years ago and the conditions have greatly improved. Hopefully more people will visit. Every dollar will definitely help them do more good work!

The iconic Raffles Hotel Le Royal takes visitors back to the French colonial period. Last November, the property, which dates to the 1920s, underwent a renovation that added Khmer artwork and fabrics. In the elegant Elephant Bar, guests can sip...

Sangkat Boeng Keng Kang Ti Pir, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
I snapped this shot in early morning, just before heading to the royal palace at the opening hour. We saw monks on the move throughout the downtown in morning. Insiders top: explore Phnom Penh just after sunrise, before the throngs of tourists,...

Tatai, Cambodia
I hadn’t been awake for longer than a minute. I peeled back the tarp door to my room, walked out onto my deck, and leapt. It was an abrupt but purifying way to start the day. The cool, brackish water instantly defogged my mind, and my eyes opened...

You know those places; the ones that make you over-stay your visa and dream of never returning home? Well, this is one of those places. Straight out of a delicious “paradise found” novel, Koh Rong island off of Cambodia’s south-west shore is a...

Krong Preah Sihanouk, Cambodia
Koh Rong Island is a MUST for anyone traveling in southern Cambodia. Not only is it the least developed island I visited in Southeast Asia, but if you’re willing to wade a short distance from the shore after dark, you can experience a magic like...

Ou Chheuteal Beach, Cambodia
Sihanoukville is definitely not off the beaten path. It's easy to become a disgruntled & cynical tourist here. The beautiful beaches are spoiled by garbage; your peaceful lounge with an umbrella drink interrupted constantly by women & children who...

Tui Beach, Kâmpóng Saôm, Cambodia
Waking up early in the tropics is a must! Our first morning on Koh Rong we awoke to this view from our charming Tree House located right on the beach. Should we linger on the porch or descend to the deserted calm beach for a walk along the...

Two hours south of the bustle of Sihanoukville, a slow boat gets you to Lazy Beach on Koh Rong Samloem, Cambodia. There's not much to do here but eat fresh seafood, drink cold Angkor beer and relax. There's some decent snorkeling on the edges of...

It sounds "too good to be true", right? No big resorts... miles of remote beaches... turquoise water... no crowds. The coastline of Cambodia is truly a tropical paradise! There are signs that things are changing, but today Otres Beach, just...
