Cambodia Travel Information


Cambodia Flag The Kingdom of Cambodia is a country is southeastern Asia. It borders Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam, and has a coastline on the Gulf of Thailand.

As of 2009, the population of the country was estimated to be 14,805,000. Phnom Penh, which had a population of just over 2 million. Apart from Phnom Penh, Cambodia has two other cities with populations over 100,000, namely Battambang and Siem Reap, as well as numerous smaller towns and cities, including Sihanoukville which is home to the country's only deep water port as well as being a popular tourist destination because of its beaches.

The recent history of Cambodia includes many tragic events. The country suffered heavily from American bombing during the Vietnam War, as well as a brief American invasion, followed by a military coup d'état in 1970, a civil war between 1970 and 1975, the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime between 1975 and 1978, a Vietnamese invasion in 1978, and then a long second civil war that dragged on until the 1990s. However, things are now improving, the country is now a multiparty democracy under a constitutional monarchy (the monarchy having been restored in 1993),

Cambodia today remains a poor country, but is today making economic progress. Agriculture and related areas remain the principal sector of the economy, and the country's main source of foreign currency remains aid. However tourism is growing, and there have been reports of oil and gas reserves found offshore.

Product Description:
Written by locals, Fodor's travel guides have been offering expert advice for all tastes and budgets for 80 years.

Sandy beaches, grand Buddhist temples, spicy cuisine, world-class spas, and a rich language--Thailand is unique among Southeast Asian nations and a not-to-be-missed destination. Thais have a deep cultural history and contrasts abound in the country, both geographically and socially. In a land the size of France, beach resorts run the gamut from popular-with-partiers Pattaya to fashionable Hua Hin. Idyllic island hideaways of virgin beaches sheltered by palm groves and lapped by gentle waters contrast with Bangkok, the busy capital.

This travel guide includes:
· Dozens of full-color maps 
· Hundreds of hotel and restaurant recommendations, with Fodor's Choice designating our top picks
· Multiple itineraries to explore the top attractions and what’s off the beaten path
· In-depth breakout features on The Grand Palace, Bangkok Street Food, and beaches
