The capital of Phnom Penh, it is home to the Central Art Deco Market, the glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum of History and Archeology. In the northwest of the country are the ruins of the Angkor Wat temple, a colossal stone temple built during the Khmer Empire.

Located in the Asian continent, Cambodia covers 176,515 square kilometers of land and 4,520 square kilometers of water, Cambodia became an independent country in 1953, after gaining its sovereignty from France.

Cambodia shares its land borders with 3 countries: Thailand, Vietnam and the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.


Siem Reap

A resort town in northwestern Cambodia, it is the gateway to the ruins of Angkor, the seat of the Khmer Kingdom from the 9th to the 15th centuries. The vast Angkor complex of intricate stone buildings includes the Angkor Wat temple, the main temple, depicted on the flag of Cambodia. Mysterious giant faces are carved into the Bayon Temple in Angkor Thom.

As a modern, low-key gateway to the archaeological site, Siem Reap Hotel contains boutique hotels, large resorts, and numerous galleries and spas. The Angkor National Museum features Khmer artifacts, including a display of 1,000 statues and statues of Buddha. The Old Market and Angkor Night Market sell goods like souvenirs, books, and spices. The Old French Quarter offers modern restaurants serving international and Cambodian food (focusing on ingredients like rice and fish). Pub Street is alive after dark.


Angkor Wat

It is a temple temple in Cambodia and one of the largest religious monuments in the world, on a site of 162.6 hectares. Originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu of the Khmer Empire, it was gradually converted into a Buddhist temple at the end of the 12th century.

Bayon Temple

It is an ornately decorated Khmer temple in Angkor, Cambodia. Baiyun was built in the late 12th or early 13th century as the state structure of Bodhi Mahayana King Jayavarman VII, and is located in the center of Jayavarman’s capital, Angkor

Banteay Srei

Or Banteay Srey is a 10th century Cambodian temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. It is located in the Angkor region, near the hill of Phnom Dee, 25 km northeast of the main group of temples that were formerly owned by the two medieval capitals of Yasudrapura and Angkor Thom. Largely constructed of red sandstone, Banteay Srei is a medium to match the elaborate decorative wall sculptures still noticeable today. The buildings themselves are miniature in size, so unusually when measured according to Angkor building standards. These factors made the temple extremely popular with tourists, and led to it being widely hailed as a “precious jewel,” or “Khmer art jewel.” Wikipe
