Chill out in Cambodia.
Siem Reap is a bustling and beautiful Cambodian city. The main street, aptly called “Pub St”, is filled with travellers, thumping bass and revelry into the early morning. It’s a place where it’s not at all unusual to be talked into a fish pedicure at 3am or be whisked away by a tuktuk driver with questionable road skills. In a city so full of life, finding tranquillity can seem unlikely, but it’s definitely not impossible. Stephanie Squadrito
