Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia in-between Thailand and Vietnam with Laos to the North.
Its serene coastline borders the Gulf of Thailand. Cambodia is a tropical country and its southernmost point is a mere 10° above the equator. It covers 181,035 square kilometers.
There are mountains to the North and East but the land is mostly flat; perfect for rice cultivation. Indeed, Cambodian Jasmine Rice recently won the World’s Best Rice competition three times in a row. The green rice fields and trees are fed by the giant Tonle Sap Lake and famous Mekong River – the 12th longest river in the world — that flows through the country and the capital city, Phnom Penh.
Minerals, oil and natural gas deposits were recently found beneath Cambodia’s territorial waters – valuable assets that will surely contribute to this burgeoning economy.
