25 fun facts about Cambodia

cambodja

Cambodia is located in the south of Southeast Asia and the country borders Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. It has a beautiful landscape with highlands and mountains and has a 443 kilometer long coastline along the Gulf of Thailand. Cambodia is the land of the impressive Angkor Wat temple, which is a silent witness of how inventive and artistic the people in Cambodia are. The recent history of Cambodia is intense and has left its mark in this beautiful country. However, I find that this fierce history contrasts sharply with the relaxed and calm atmosphere that now prevails. What are fun facts about Cambodia?

Cambodia Killing Fields: an impressive and sad visit

killingfields-Cambodja

The Killing Fields in Cambodia are – along with Angkor Wat – the most visited place in the country. The Khmer Rouge regime of Pol Pot is known as one of the greatest mass murders in history. Execution places, the Killing Fields, are now monuments and provide insights into the terrible tragedy that took place in Cambodia. Whoever wants to have a better understanding of Cambodia must delve (a little bit) into this civil war. And a visit to the Killing Fields in Cambodia is necessary for this.

Visiting this place is enormously sad and at the same time very impressive.

A must visit Cambodia: Landmine Museum in Siem Reap

landmijnen museum

The Cambodia landmine museum in Siem Reap is definitely recommended and left a very deep impression on me. In order to understand the story behind the landmine museum in Siem Reap, it’s important to know a little of the volatile history. Pol Pot’s reign (1975 – 1978) led to forced labor, malnourishment, bad medical care and executions. About 21% of the Cambodian population died (in total approximately 3 million people).

Landmines cause new victims every day in Cambodia, about 800 per every year.
