Total Road Atlas of Cambodia 2008

The latest and most comprehensive road atlas for Cambodia has just arrived at Monument Books on Norodom Boulevard, Phnom Penh and is well worth getting a copy. I got mine today, priced $15. The Total Road Atlas is in English and French and contains more complete maps and considerable detail on hundreds of tourist sites, both natural and archaeological. It's aimed at the serious and adventurous traveller who wants to delve deeper into Cambodia, outside of the three main areas of Phnom Penh, Angkor and Sihanoukville. It's a bit bulky at 145 pages and if I was being ultra critical, the province maps, with the addition of more villages and the smaller historic sites, and the town maps, can still be improved with greater detail, but the atlas is the best so far that's available on and in Cambodia.
