about

Insight Guide Laos and Cambodia is the only full color travel guide to these two fascinating countries, and its lively narrative and stunning images provide both inspiration and information to plan a memorable trip to Indochina. The Best Of section shows you the unmissable sights and experiences - Angkor, the region's most spectacular sight, as well as the two contrasting capitals: laid-back, French-influenced Vientiane in Laos and Phnom Penh, Cambodia's animated capital on the banks of the Mekong River, plus markets, temples, relaxing beaches and islands. Lively features focus on the two countries' history and culture, while the Places chapters show you where to go in Laos and Cambodia, with beautiful photography, insightful descriptions of all the main attractions, and detailed, full color maps for easy orientation.
