Cambodia is better than you expect.

You will be very impressed by the hotels and services you will find in Cambodia considering that not so long a go this country was the site of one of the most terrible conflicts with millions of victims.

Nowadays the country is safe and fast developing as a major tourist destination in SW Asia.

The main attraction is the ancient city of Angkor Wat a temple complex and one of the largest religious monuments in the world, on a site measuring 162.6 hectares. Originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, it was gradually transformed into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century and nowadays is probably one of the most visited world heritage site in Asia.

To get a sense of the place you need some 4-5 days and at least 3 local tours of about a day each.

Food is delicious and tasty everywhere, in restaurants for tourist you pay some 4-7$ per dish and on street stands 1.5-3$. Beers are 0.5-1$ and cocktails 3-7$

Massages are very cheep, a one hour foot massage you will pay 4-7$ and hole body 15-20 depending on the place.

Renting a car with a driver and a guide will cost 80-120 USD a day permit excluded but you can get around for much less with a Tuk-Tuk for about 25$ a day.

The permit for Angkor Wat temple complex is 62$ for 3 days.

In my quest to visit every country in the world Cambodia was no 80. Here are some pictures for you
