We continue to advise Australians to exercise normal safety precautions elsewhere in Cambodia.'
The main marketing slogan for promoting Cambodia internationally is the "Kingdom of Wonder".

1. Cultural Attractions - a unique cultural heritage spanning more than a thousand years of history.
2. Natural Attractions - astonishing scenery with dense, unexplored mountains, forest, rivers, caves and waterfalls.
3. People and Traditions - Cambodians are extremely hospitable, resilient, welcoming and kind; smiles are heartfelt.
