A brief guide on 3 ways to get around Cambodia

A country in Southeast Asia, Cambodia is among the most fascinating tourist destinations in the region.

It holds some of the world's best beaches, jungles, and a rich culture revolving around Buddhism.

Even with all these fascinations, Cambodia is not really touristy.

Most regions in Cambodia are pouched in thick evergreen forests or in lakes and rivers and thus remain unexplored.
