Welcome to Cambodia
This south-east Asian nation has Laos to the north, Thailand to the north-west, Vietnam to the east bordered and the Gulf of Thailand to the south-west. Cambodia is a beautiful country of pristine waterfalls, dense jungles and shimmering beaches.
For over 600 years the mighty Khmer Empire flourished and ruled much of what is now Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. The splendor of this empire can be seen in the Temple of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage-listed complex.
The country was a protectorate of France for 100 years until 1953. In the 1970’s the country suffered under the Khmer Rouge who committed genocide on their own people.
Cambodia manages to cross the line between untrodden eastern destination and tourist, haven.
