Kampot - south-east Cambodia
Kampot is a small town in south-east Cambodia and capital of the province with same name. The main reason for most travellers to venture to Kampot is its close proximity to Bokor National Park with its ruined French colonial resort town at the top Bokor Mountain in the Elephant Mountain range. This is one of the most spectacular sites in Cambodia and well worth a visit."

Preah Vihear Temple
Preah Vihear lies in Sisaket province of Cambodia and directly on the edge of the Thai border. This natural barrier, which encloses the Cambodian plain, was crossed by a number of roads that led to the sacred sites dedicated to the god Shiva of Wat Phu in Laos and Phimai in present day Thailand."
