Overview

Cambodia has a challenging history and a mysterious past. The temple complex at Angkor Wat is a highlight for students of Religious Studies but any of the sites associated with the Khmer civilization are fascinating for everyone. Together with its rich cultural heritage, this is a destination that will certainly captivate you…

A visit to Cambodia is like a visit to the past. Its name derives from the Sanskrit for ‘The Golden Land of Peace and Prosperity’ but for much of its history there has seldom been peace and its population has experienced little prosperity. It is now, however, one of the fastest growing economies in the region and is rapidly becoming a destination for travelers seeking an experience of a lifetime. It’s a different world where you can wander around ancient temples in the jungle and shop from boats in floating markets.

  • Angkor Wat, state-temple of Suriyavarman II, from the early 12th century and the largest religious monument on earth.
  • Angkor Thom, royal capital of prolific builder Jayavarman VII, dating from the late twelfth century.
