Absolutely brilliant trip and includes all the best parts of Cambodia however I strongly suggest that during monsoon season Sihanoukville is taken off as it can be quite depressing to be wet and not have much to do for 2 straight days.

Short travel times, enough activities to keep busy, ridiculously cheap food and drinks. A great all round tour and part of the world.
