Cambodia

Cambodia is a small country with a relatively long history behind it. Currently catching up to be a modernized state, Cambodia was once witnessed to Asia's early known civilizations, the mighty Khmer empire of Angkor, whose temples from ancient times still stand and bedazzle Cambodia with much charm– as well as reeling in tourists by the millions. Away from the popular temples and prying eyes, most of Cambodia is still unexplored, which makes any visit more exciting, it may give you a surprise or two if you wander enough.
