As you already know the highlight of a visit to Cambodia is Angkor Wat. Other than that I would suggest spending a day in Phnom Penn, where you can visit the touture/genecide museum, check out the palace along the Mekong, the Khmer art in the National Museum, and take a side trip out to the killing fields.

Thanks for the reply!

We will be arriving at siam reap first and travel to phnom penh before leaving home.

Is there anywhere we should check out along our way to phnom penh?

With such a short time to see Cambodia, you won't have many options. If you're a big temple/archaelogy fan, you might consider stopping in Kompong Thom for a day. It's on the road between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Close to Kompong Thom is Sambor Prei Kuk, some old Khmer brick temple ruins. Another option is stopping in Battambang for a day or two. It's on a different road linking Siem Reap and PP. Or you can travel by boat (some nice canals and river) from SR to Battambang. Nice riverside town with some more cool ruins (Phnom Banan, etc.) nearby.

Hello Mmay_wong,
You have 6-7 days for Cambodia, I would suggest to stay in Siem Reap for 4 days, then take the boat from Siem Reap to Battambong (as I found this boat trip truly enjoyable, then go further to Phnom Penh by bus, after that you will fly back home from Phnom Penh.

Enjoy your trip,
Thi_travel :)

If you have a day to spare while you're heading to the south coast, consider stopping in Kampot and/or Kep. Near Kampot is Bokor Mountain...a spooky former hotel/casino on the top of a beautiful mountain. Kep has a similar deserted feel. Both towns are great little spots to check out along the way.
