Cambodia

Overview

The Kingdom of Cambodia is probably most famous for being home to one of the world's most impressive man-made wonders: Angkor Wat, one of a handful of places everyone must visit during their lifetime — although just the beginning of this enigmatic country which has so much to offer. Don't go if you cannot stand to witness suffering. Don't miss it if you want the experience of a lifetime. The scars of war under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge are largely healed now in this lovely Buddhist constitutional monarchy of extremely gracious people, delicious cuisine and rich cultural history.
