A Canadian backpacker seeing the world with her British pal has died under mysterious circumstances at a hostel in Cambodia.

Wendy doesn't know how her daughter died, as an official cause of death is yet to be established.

But police informed her of the pair's deaths at 5am on Tuesday.

She posted a picture just three days ago of a boat trip off the Cambodian coast.

Natalie had left the United Kingdom on a one-way ticket to meet her friend Abbey Amisola in Cambodia.

In a recent tweet she said: "Figuring out where I want to travel to is so hard because I want to go everywhere and do everything".

A staff member reportedly found the bodies.

They were taken to hospital but could not be revived.

Local reports suggest that the women had already died when they were discovered. (Supplied) Ms Seymour (pictured) was travelling with her friend, Abbey Amisola, who was also found dead in the Monkey Republic Guest House.

"One of the staff saw them (the night before they were found dead) and asked if they were going to eat in the restaurant, but they said they weren't going to be eating".

A spokeswoman for the guesthouse said they were "very nice women" who were travelling together. They arrived together and went around together.

Cambodian authorities are now investigating their deaths and Cambodia's Department of Immigration said preliminary investigations had found that they had been suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting, reported MailOnline.
