Cambodia is almost hemmed in by its neighbours, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand and indeed, the country has remained hidden from the outside world for much of the last century. Now emerging from years of isolation and devastating war, the country offers a true taste of Southeast Asia before the arrival of tourism and modernisation. Most visitors head for the stunning Angkor ruins, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However the optimism, warmth and generosity of the Cambodian people are one of the abiding memories.

The sights

Angkor: The ancient capital of the powerful Khmer Empire from the9th to the 12th century is the spiritual and cultural centre of Cambodia.Rediscovered in the late 19th century from beneath the overgrown jungle, the "lost city of Angkor" is one of the world’s most spectacular sites and home to one of the greatest religious monuments in the world, Angkor Wat. A visit to the temples of Angkor will leave you with a profound feeling that few places on earth can match!
