I will be in Cambodia this November. We are spending the first part of the trip in Siem Reap. I am trying to figure out what to do next before we continue on to Japan.
My thought is to either fly from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, spend's a few days there, then fly to Japan, OR, instead of Phnom Penh, go to a part of Cambodia where we could relax by the beach for a few days. Then return to Siem Reap airport to catch flight to Japan. I would appreciate any thoughts from anyone that is familiar with Cambodia.
My main interest are the ruins of Ankor etc. My wife would appreciate some down time at a nice calm beach, but is not opposed to Phnom Penh either.
When I look at ideas for Phnom Penh I see the palace and the Killing Fields museum as must sees but I don't feel a particularly strong desire to go here, so I am hoping for some thoughts to guide my decision. We have 3-4 days to play with, so any advice from someone that has been here would be greatly appreciated.
