Cambodia

Cambodia is nearly 90% populated by the Khmer, mixed with Vietnam, Chinese, Cham and ethnicities from the mountains. The country is characterized by an immense plain, lined with mountains, watered by the Mekong. In the center of the basin, the Grand Lac (Tonle Sap) stretches over one hundred and twenty kilometers. The country suffered a long period of political instability, from 1970 to 1989. The civil war, the regime of the Khmer Rouge and the invasion of the Vietnamese made 1.7 million victims. Cambodia is now free of wars and its economy is growing.

The Constitution of the Kingdom of Cambodia, adopted on 21 September 1993, establishes the democratic and liberal character of its institutions and finds support in the deep roots of the Khmer tradition. The country's economic development is currently driven by the growing tourism and textile sectors, but the country remains dependent on international aid. Besides the famous site of Angkor, one can discover amazing islands, lost temples, areas still little explored and ethnic groups firmly attached to their traditions.

Cambodia is generally described as a conservative and traditionalist country. However, there is a cultural shift taking place in the larger cities where the way of life is different and Western influences are widespread. Today, the majority of Khmer people are Theravada Buddhists. This religion has a real impact on their way of life. Most travelers are fascinated by the warmth and kindness of the Cambodian people.

Geography

Cambodia is surrounded by Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Its area is of 181 035 km2 and its sea border, 443 km long, overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. It has three large mountain ranges: the Elephant Mountains to the south, the Cardamom Mountains to the west and the Annamite Cordillera to the east.

Climate

The country is located at low altitude, either at river level or even lower, and therefore the rainy season increases the level of the lakes and the main river: the Mekong. Nearly 80% of the rainfall received in a year falls during the rainy season. Temperatures range from 10 ¬į C to 38 ¬į C. Cambodia is influenced by a tropical climate with "alternate seasons": showers from May to November¬†and almost absolute drought¬†between December and April.

Population

The total population of Cambodia is over 14 million.

Politics

The country's political regime is a constitutional monarchy headed by the prime minister Hun Sen in power since 1985.
