Cambodia has an ideal terrain for cycling, being very flat with some highland areas including the Cardomom Mountains in the southwest. However as one of the poorest countries in Asia the infrastructure is poor, albeit improving. Until relatively recently many roads were unpaved (although that can be good for cycling too!) but thanks to external assistance this is rapidly changing. Fortunately traffic is still relatively light compared to most Asian countries - away from the cities anyway.
The height of Cambodian power and influence was under the Khmer Empire from the 9th to 15th centuries, after which it came under the influence of one or other of the neighbouring powers of Vietnam and Siam (now Thailand). In 1867 Cambodia became part of French Indochina, which continued for almost a century. A gruesome reminder of Cambodia's more recent history can be found at the Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh and also the nearby infamous Killing Fields.
