Cambodia

Ancient Buddha

Over a thousand years ago, one of the world’s greatest cities rose from Cambodia’s jungles, it was a colossal city, made up of over 200 exquisite monuments, all built to celebrate and honor the kings of the Khmer empire. Today that city, Angkor, is a World Heritage Site, an unofficial Eighth Wonder of the World, and a beacon to adventurous travelers from around the globe. It is also the cultural and spiritual center of Cambodia, a source of stability and pride to a nation emerging from decades of turbulence.
