CAMBODIA was called the "Land of Smiles". It's still true, despite the difficult struggle that Cambodia should lead to rebuild a country that has been totally destroyed, how not to fall under the spell of a country as beautiful and endearing as a population? Cambodia is different from its neighbors, friendly people, the beauty of its landscapes, its rich cultural heritage and handicrafts will transport the traveler in a different era giving him the unique opportunity to experience Asian virgin. The Khmer kingdom is incredibly fascinating. Its troubled history and its people slain can trigger strange morbid curiosities. But it's not that simple: first of all, hanging over the country this amazing mystery that could be called magic. Magic waters of the Tonle Sap river, which each year, reverses its course, magical sandstone temples strangled by the jungle and magic of all those smiles that seem to invite you to the sweetness as much as adventure.
The tourist attractions in the country are considerable and diverse, ranging from outstanding architectural and cultural sites, wildlife and natural attractions, mountains, lakes, rivers, beautiful beaches, numerous islands, attractive towns and cities and a rich culture.
