City of Angkor is great, and I see Cambodia also has some other beautiful places to visit. You should travel to Koh Rong Island in Sihanouk.

Here is my personal selection of the Most Beautiful Places in the World.

All pictures are in LARGE format so click on them to get the full size.

The emphasis is on maybe lesser known countries and places and for photogenic events or natural occurrences mixed with some more cultural or historical sites. I purposely tried to avoid places which were already named here or that were already in some of my existing answers like What are the must-visit islands of the world?

Briksdal Glacier, Norway
Bromo volcano, Indonesia
Rapa river delta, Lapland, Sweden
Shinto Gates, Kyoto, Japan
Tsingy de Bemaraha Park, Madagascar
