Cambodia is a Southeast Asian country on the Indochinese mainland with a population of over 17 million people. Phnom Penh, also known as the "Pearl of Asia," is Cambodia's capital and largest city. Many Asian cultures, as well as those of France and the United States, can be found in Phnom Penh, an economic, commercial, cultural, and tourist centre.
Cambodia's economy, driven by garment exports and tourism, grew at an average annual rate of 8% between 1998 and 2018, making it one of the world's fastest-growing economies. While the Cambodian economy continues to suffer from the COVID-19 pandemic's effects, there are signs that economic activity is picking up. Cambodia's tourism and travel sector has gradually recovered since the second quarter of 2020, thanks to the return of domestic tourists to the main tourist destinations.
