Cambodia is beautiful, unspoiled, vibrant and buzzing with excitement. From the capital of Phnom Penh to the temples of Angkor Wat, Cambodia has an energy that comes after years of upheaval and violence. This energy comes from the people of Cambodia, who are described as some of the friendliest in the region.
The Kingdom of Cambodia, located in the heart of Southeast Asia, is an ancient land with a young population. The median age of its people is 21 years. Regardless of their age, Cambodians are often poor.
According to the 2006 Human Development Report published by the United Nations, about 34 per cent of Cambodians live on less than US$1 a day in 2004.
