Cambodia's landscape is made up of low-lying plains, the Mekong Delta, mountains and the spectacular Gulf of Thailand coastline. Its exciting capital Phnom Penh features a magnificent Royal Palace, a historic Central Market and plenty of historical architecture, which harkens back to the country's captivating and majestic history. Leaving behind its bloody past, Cambodia's economy has been on the upswing, increasing by over 8% between 2000 and 2010. Its growth covers industries such as tourism, construction, garments, real estate, and agriculture. The cost of living in Cambodia is very cheap, in terms of food and accommodation, however, this is largely because Cambodia is still one of Asia's poorest countries, and is lacking in education and healthcare for local people, especially in the countryside. Many expats choose to live in the cities of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, or Sihanoukville and make the move to Cambodia to work as English teachers or to work in the technology industries.
