The Kingdom of Cambodia is well-known for its magnificent temples, exquisite beaches, lovely people and flourishing textile industry. It has a rich history dating back centuries, with unique traditions shaped its people’s practice of Buddhism.
There are quite a few elements which make it seem only right for Phnom Penh to be Cambodia’s capital. Aside from its cultural, economic and political appeal, a unique blend of French and Khmer architecture is sewn into the city, reflecting its decorated history. It is also where the country’s three great waters—Tonle Sap, Mekong and Basaac—unite. It is best described today as a thorough experience for the senses, as it is filled with sights, smells and tastes that parallel Cambodia’s famed exoticism.
