Cambodia

The Kingdom of Cambodia is a small nation in South East Asia which nestles between Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Cambodia’s 16 million inhabitants call the country Kampuchea and they speak the Khmer language.
Phnom Penh has been the Kingdom’s capital since the 19th Century, and during the era of the French Protectorate from 1863 to 1953, the city became known as the Pearl of Southeast Asia.
Today, Cambodia is perhaps best known for the stunning Temples of Angkor situated in the town of Siem Reap in the northwest of the country. Although there are over 284 known temples located within Cambodia’s territory, it is the magnificent Angkor temple complex which attracts around 6 million visitors per year.
Cambodia is also known unfortunately for its tragic recent history and the genocide which took place between 1975 and 1979 perpetrated by the communist Khmer Rouge government, and subsequent civil war which finally ended in 1998.
Since then, Cambodia’s economy has been booming, growing at an average of 7% per year. The main driver of the economy is garment manufacturing with many of the world’s top brands producing clothes here in the Kingdom. Tourism, agriculture and construction are also rapidly developing sectors.
Cambodia is most famous however for the friendliness of her people and their perpetual smiles. The warm welcome you’ll receive here will inspire you on your journey discovering everything the Kingdom of Wonder has to offer from ancient temples to sleepy river towns and stunning coasts and islands.
We look forward to warmly welcoming you to the Kingdom of Wonder.
