Cambodia’s richly diverse landscape and important history is attracting an ever-growing number of tourists every year. This beautiful country has so much to explore from the awe-inspiring Mekong River to the stunning Cardamom Mountains. It is also home to the Angkor Wat temple complex, a stunning site built during the Khmer Empire which is believed to be the largest religious monument in the world and is often regarded as the eighth wonder of the world. As well as boasting a rich ancient history, Cambodia has however endured more troubled times. Students of history keen to learn more about the Khymer Rouge regime will be interested in visiting the Tuol Sleng Prison Museum and the Choeung Ek Memorial, which both stand as important reminders of the horrors of the past. No trip to Cambodia is complete without a visit to the capital Phnom Penh, which is home to the beautiful Central Market and Royal Palace among other landmarks.
