In recent years, Cambodia has been a popular tourist destination. Its mysterious and transcendent cultural heritages are big attractions to expeditioners, archeologists, historians, and even filmmakers.

As Monday marks National Pavilion Day of the Kingdom of Cambodia at the Shanghai World Expo, perhaps this is your best opportunity to discover the southeast Asian country without travelling far.

Cambodian Pavilion Day began with a folk dance performance inspired by field work during harvest season.

With the theme, "Cultural Life in the City," the exhibition hall fully embodies Cambodia's sense of cultural heritage protection with its three historical periods: Angkor, Odong, and Phnom-Penh periods. These three periods witnessed Cambodian development since its establishment to modern day. The pavilion features the country's rich culture, art, historical relics, and abundant natural resources.

Stone-built architecture in the Angkor Period, including the royal monasteries, temples, Buddha statues, roads and bridges are displayed in the pavilion, taking visitors to the ancient eras.
