In recent years, more and more young tourists have turned their alcohol-fuelled attention away from the Thai islands, to Cambodia's coastal towns. Although the largest town of Sihanoukville has a reputation of being a party place (with a seedy side), there are still corners of charm and nearby stretches of sand that haven't been claimed by the crowds.

The town of Siem Reap is most renowned for being the gateway to the iconic temples of Angkor, which are a source of national pride and a point of pilgrimage for many Cambodians. These temples have also inspired and featured in films, such as The Jungle Book and Tomb Raider, and have been attracting travellers in their droves over the past couple of decades.

Thanks to an influx of foreign investment over the past decade, many western amenities have popped up across the city, making the capital even more popular with the expat crowds. Read this article to find out more about finding a job in the Penh.
