Officially the Kingdom of Cambodia, this Southeast Asian nation on the Indochinese Peninsula’s southern tip has been an independent country since 1953. Famous worldwide as the home of Angkor Wat, which is only one of the many historical sites in Cambodia, the country is rich in history and stunning scenery. Despite its troubled recent Khmer Rouge history, Cambodia’s legacy stretches way back to the once-mighty powers that presided over these lands during the 3rd, 4th, and 5th centuries. Famed for its ancient ruins and unique traditions and customs, it’s no surprise that ‘The Kingdom of Wonder’ receives more than two million visitors a year.

Angkor Wat: A glorious, fallen civilization; Hans Tammemagi; Kamloops This Week

In spite of torrid heat and sweat dripping down his back, Hans Tammemagi was captivated by the sight before him. Banyan roots the thickness of a horse’s torso entwined the stones of a huge temple, crushing them, twisting them and ever so slowly taking command of this patch of Cambodian jungle.
