Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation whose landscape spans low-lying plains, the Mekong Delta, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. It was once known as the Khmer Empire. With a population of over 15 million, Cambodia is the 70th most populous country in the world. It's busy capital, Phnom Penh, is the political, economic, and cultural centre of the country. Now a modest player on the world stage, Cambodia was once the seat of one of Asia’s most magnificent early civilizations - the mighty Khmer empire of Angkor, whose legendary temples continue to provide a touchstone of national identity as well as attracting millions of visitors every year.
Good-natured and loving, exotic and tropical, cultured and historic, Thailand radiates a golden hue from its ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha (a revered symbol), opulent royal palaces and tropical beaches through to the ever-comforting Thai smile. It is located at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia. The capital and largest city is Bangkok, which is Thailand's political, commercial, industrial, and cultural hub. With great food, a tropical climate, fascinating culture, majestic mountains and significant beaches, Thailand is a magnet for travellers around the world!
