Cambodia’s landscapes have started to fascinate travelers from all over the world. Long beautiful white sand beaches and crystal clear water are rather the norm than the exception.
Yet, contemporary Cambodia is marked by its long history. It’s the successor state to the mighty Khmer empire, which was ruling over the landscapes of what we now call Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. Much of the empire’s remains can be seen at the fabled temples of Angkor, monuments unrivalled in scale and grandeur in Southeast Asia.
But many are convinced that Cambodia’s biggest treasure lies not in stunning sunrise views at magical temples, but in the fascinating kindness and unbreakable spirit of its people. Visiting Cambodia means to open your heart to a country that still is in the process of recuperating its dark past with such aspiring energy, it’s impossible to leave without a measure of admiration and affection for the inhabitants of this enigmatic kingdom.
