THE GREAT KHMER EMPIRE
The Kingdom of Cambodia captures the heart of all travellers, moved by its tragic history, beguiled with its arresting beauty and inspired by its astonishing archaeological sites. The jewel in Cambodia`s crown is the legendary Angkor Wat, one of the great wonders of the world. Although the spectres of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge still haunt the country, peace and optimism are slowly returning into the once harmonious Buddhist land.
Some call it the “Country of Scars”, others would name it the “Land of Indiana Jones” and for many it will always remain the eternal ancient “Khmer Empire”. No matter what epithet is used to express the character of Cambodia, this country undisputedly provides a phenomenal experience to those ripe for discovery and exploration. Lichen-covered ruins hidden in wild jungles. Pristine beaches and paradise islands with jasmine-scented sunsets. Mystic temples sheltering saffron-robed monks.Vibrant cities with a gracious colonial architecture and mighty Mekong river banks covered by clouds of dragonflies and gorgeous silk markets. All these appeals are not too far from each other what gives visitors the opportunity to reveal the secrets of this refreshingly diverse land in a fairly short time.
