Cambodia

Cambodia, a Southeast Asian nation whose landscape spans from low-lying plains, the Mekong Delta, and the mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. With Phnom Penh, as its capital, it's also the home to the art deco Central Market, glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum's historical and archaeological exhibits. Angkor Wat lies in the country's northwest region, a massive stone temple complex built during the Khmer Empire. After the 1991 Paris Peace Accords, Cambodia was briefly governed by a United Nations mission from 1992–93.

The UN withdrew after holding an election where 90% of the registered voters cast ballots. Power came to the hands of Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Cambodian People's Party after the coup in 1997 and it remains until 2017. While their income per capita remains low compared to most neighbouring countries, Cambodia has one of the fastest-growing economies among the Southeast Asian nation with growth averaging 6% over the last decade. Agriculture is the dominant economic sector, with strong growth in textiles, construction, garments, and tourism leading to increased foreign investment and international trade. Cambodia scored poorly in an annual index of 2015 ranking the rule of law in 102 countries, placing 99th overall and the worst in the region.

The temples in Cambodia is very important to its people's culture and they are very old and fragile. Due to this visitors should treat these temple ruins as national icons and delicate structures that need to be preserved for future generations. Visitors should refrain from touching ancient statues and stones as much as possible.

Some of the famous temples in Cambodia are Angkor Wat, Prasat Bayon, Ta Prohm, Banteay Srei, Neak Pean, Banteay Kdei, Banteay Samre, Phnom Bakheng, Preah Khan, Pre Rup.
