Officially known as the Kingdom of Cambodia, this country is situated in the southern portion of the Indo-China Peninsula. The country is bordered by Thailand in the northwest, Laos in the northeast, Vietnam in the east, and the Gulf of Thailand in the southwest. Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and also the largest city. Tourism is one of the main drivers of the country’s economy. Most of the tourists hail from Japan, China, Europe, and America. The Angkor Wat historical park in Siem Reap province, the beaches in Sihanoukville and the capital city Phnom Penh are the main tourist attractions in Cambodia. The country offers tropical beaches, colonial buildings and abundance of natural attractions. The divergent facets of the kingdom provoke both the serious and casual travellers, who are always fascinated and sometimes perplexed by its mysteries.
Tourists can travel to this place by booking flights with international airlines that fly to the Phnom Penh International Airport or the Siem Reap International Airport. Travellers from India can reach Cambodia by boarding flights, available from major Indian cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Bengaluru. Some of the other Indian cities that are connected to Cambodia by regular flights are Ahmedabad, Kochi, Coimbatore, Hyderabad and Trivandrum.

You can expect 70-80% silver in many of the items on sale in towns, cities and local villages across Cambodia. Temple rubbings on rice paper are good to frame and mount on your wall. The Krama is the traditional scarf worn by many Cambodians; many tourists buy it as souvenirs.
