There is so much to see and do in Cambodia, it's not even funny.

First off, you really do need to do the touristy things in Phnom Penh: the killing fields, Royal Palace, Central markets, Genocide Museum etc. A couple hour bus ride from Phnom Penh is a little town called Sihanoukville, which is a premier beach destination in Cambodia. It's got beaches, Scuba Diving, Island Day Trips and a reserve you can check out. A really relaxing destination. You can quite easily find a hostel or cheap accomm there for $10 p/n.

Assuming you're going to go to Siem Reap and check out Ankor Wat, definitely hire the bicycles and give yourself a good two days to go through the temples. I highly recommend going for the dusk tour on one of your days there, it's very picturesque and youll get some good photos out of the experience to take back home.

Hope this helps you out
