Home to the largest religious monument in the world, Angkor Wat, the Khmer Empire at one time covered modern Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and the Malay Peninsula. Later, in colonial times, its new capital Phnom Penh would become know as the “Pearl of Asia”. Despite the devastation of left behind by the genocide of the Khmer Rouge during the Cold War, architectural artifacts from both Angkor and the French colonial period remain and are highly sought after by antique collectors.
