The Kingdom of Cambodia is a south east Asian country with a population of 13 million inhabitants. The Cambodian territory consists mostly of plains, and borders Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Cambodia's capital is the city of Phnom Penh. During the 9th and 15 centuries Cambodia was the centre of the mighty Khmer empire. Its capital was situated in Angkor, which lies near the city of Siem Reap. Angkor Wat is the most famous and best-preserved temple at the archaeological site, which nowadays is listed as a UNESCO World heritage site. After independence Cambodia went through a period of upheaval, suffering from a brutal regime and a subsequent civil war. Since then Cambodia has recovered and its economy is growing. The safety situation has also improved substantially, so that the country is now safe to travel for tourists.
