Cambodia is one of the Southeast Asian nations. In order for Cambodia to sustain its economy, it relies solely on textile and garment production and tourism. There are several historical places in Cambodia that everyone wants to see, and here are a few.
1.) The Angkor Archeological Park
Khmer civilization flourished here, a civilization so advanced during its time that it still amazes visitors today. You can visit the Angkor Wat Temple, Angkor Thom Temple, and Bayon Temple here. If you want to see everything that Angkor has to offer, you should take one of their tours, since they are more comprehensive than just touring it yourself.
2.) The National Park of Bokor
An old and dilapidated French hill station is located in this national park. Many Khmers lost their lives for the creation of this once-magnificent building. Aside from this, the national park is also home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.
3.) The Cham Village
It is the third largest city in Cambodia and one of the most popular tourist destinations, although not as popular as Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
