For over six centuries, the mighty Khmer Empire flourished in Cambodia, a scenic land of majestic temples, pristine waterfalls, and dense jungles. A protectorate of France between 1863 and 1953, the country suffered under the Khmer Rouge, a ruling party remembered mostly for its part in organizing the bloody Cambodian genocide of the 1970s. Today, a trip to Cambodia will reveal the region's troubled history, but also some of Southeast Asia's most significant archaeological sites. Few tourist attractions in Cambodia match the splendor of Angkor Wat, a World Heritage-listed temple complex that represents the biggest religious monument on the planet.

West Greece travel guide

Ruins · History Museums · Churches
In contrast to the country's island destinations, West Greece boasts a blend of trendy resorts and pristine natural areas. The region includes the western section of the Greek mainland and the northwestern corner of the Peloponnese, a major tourist destination in and of itself. Culturally and geographically distinct from the rest of the country, West Greece contains valleys and dense forests, sheltering wildlife and native plants. In between these unspoiled natural ecosystems, you'll find tiny traditional settlements, seemingly immune to mass tourism. The pace of life continues slowly here, allowing West Greece to remain one of the last truly "Greek" parts of the country.
