Why Take a Gap Year in Cambodia
Best known for its stunning jungle landscape and hidden ancient temples, to visit Cambodia feels like taking a step back into a forgotten world. Travellers are fascinated by the country’s rich cultural heritage, unique cuisine and relentlessly welcoming people, so much so that the country has become a Mecca for the modern backpacker.
This is also due in no small part to the jungle-choked ruins of Angkor Wat, ancient capital of the Khmer Empire and the world's largest single religious monument. Only a handful of the 1,000-plus temples have been cleared of forest, while the rest remain so atmospherically cloaked in vines they are often used backdrops for Hollywood films.
After decades of civil war and the genocide wrought by the Khmer Rouge, the violence of Cambodia's modern history looms large. But no matter whether you follow in the footsteps of adventurers of yore or plumb the dark depths of the Killing Fields, Cambodia leaves an indelible impression.
