When planning a trip, what usually comes to mind are popular tourist spots and when with the family, Disneyland where there are lots of games and enjoyment for them. For a change, visit Cambodia.[/COLOR]
A few days with nature will surely enrich the mind and leave an experience that is cool and relaxing. At times, the mention of Cambodia often connotes a negative feeling because of a cruel history about the terror from the Khmer Rouge in 1975-1979 causing anticipation that landmines may still be active and buried somewhere. Four decades after, it has already managed to rise above its troubled past to become an all year round tourist destination, where the hospitality of the Cambodians has no boundaries. Taken in general, the country is safe and Cambodia is now the 59th safest country in the world. That gives us so much reason to take the time to enjoy the raw and natural beauty of this Southeast Asian country.
Cambodia is a small tropical country which is blessed with a wealth of natural resources and history all together. Before the Khmer rouge, Cambodia was ruled by the powerful Khmer Empire, making it the largest pre-industrial urban center in the world. The Khmer empire which ruled for 5 centuries was responsible for the historic temples and the many relics that are so much of a tourist attraction at present. When you come and visit Cambodia[/COLOR]
