Cambodia the 'Hot spot'

In the newest release from the bible of travel guides, the Lonely Planet Bluelist

Besides featuring categories such as "most awesome trek" and "best

places to get naked," the guidebook also profiles 60 trendy destinations to

visit this year - including Cambodia. Also, Phnom Penh takes a third place in the

category "cities on the rise."

This new acclaim for Destination Cambodia adds to the praise the country received

in the 2005 Lonely Planet Guide to Cambodia, which opened with the sentence "Cambodia

is kicking!"
