Southeast Asia is an ideal travel holiday and vacation destination offering all what people like for their most precious time of the year regardless of age and gender. Most countries which are clustered along the equator are tuned for the tourists and have the right spots to make everyone happy. What needs you to do? Not much just do as locals do which means such simple things keep in mind that east meets west but with different traditions and rules. Hotels and resorts are plenty beaches and island too and just think positive there is no need to be negative because everything is not the way you are used at home. ​​
Cambodian art and culture

Khmer Culture & Art

Khmer Culture has a long way back

Cambodian Culture and Art
​Khmer Art shows a highly developed creativ culture over the centuries. Unfortunately there is not much art of the old days available in Cambodia anymore.

When the French came into Cambodia looting of Khmer Art got a steep swing upwards. There was also some looting going on before but on a very small scale, rather small things as souvenirs but with the French colonialists it became a thriving business since plenty of rich people in Europe wanted exceptional and exotic pieces of art and this is what Khmer Art was.

The best and richest display of Khmer Art in Cambodia is at the National Museum in Phnom Penh. The best pieces of art still available in the country were brought from Angkor to the museum in the capital. A beautiful place in a garden setting bring the sculptures and other art objects into the right "light".
