The Kingdom of Cambodia is the most recent state appellation of the millenary old Khmer peoples whose ancient history entails a succession of periods of peace and conflict but that now strives due to its population's determination and high demand in tourism. This Southeast Asian state's landscape spans accross low-lying plains, shores of the Mekong Delta, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. Its busy capital, Phnom Penh, is home to the art deco Central Market, glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum's historical and archaeological exhibits on the Angkorian era. Its recent dark history can be explored at the edge of the city at the Killings fields, a former execution site during the Khmer Rouge Era or at the dismal Tuol Seng prison at the city.
At the Northwest of the country lie the ruins of Angkor Wat, Cambodia's main attraction. It is a massive stone temple complex built during the Golden age of the Khmer Empire surrounded by more than fifty other smaller temples. UNESCO World Heritage Site, it attracts millions of tourists each year. During your travel to Cambodia, we encourage you to visit Kep, Kampot, Battambang or visit Pursat other regions that offer unique landscapes from beaches to mountains ideal for adventure tourism and more.
