At a Glance

In the 19th and 20th centuries the nations of Vietnam and Cambodia — the offspring of ancient empires that dominated Asia for more than 1,000 years — were beset by imperial warfare and sundered by ethnic violence. Today, these modern states are integrating into the global community even as they mend the wounds of an era of atrocity. Consider legacies both bleak and beautiful as you bike through villages and rice paddies where authentic Khmer and Vietnamese culture lives on.
