Cambodia, home of the great Khmer civilization which created the vast temple complex at Angkor Wat, is one of the most fascinating and distinctive countries in Southeast Asia. Most visitors come to see Angkor Wat, lost in the jungle for centuries, and now a renowned World Heritage Site. However, Cambodia has much more to offer in addition to Angkor,, including the landmarks and temples of Phnom Penh, wildlife watching at Angkor and Tonle Sap, and a still-present French colonial heritage – visitors arriving at Phnom Penh international airport may be surprised to find French taking precedence over English on the arrival signs, and the aroma of coffee and croissants in the air.
