The Kingdom of Cambodia, a member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, is located in the Indo-China Peninsula, bordering Thailand in the west and northwest, bordering Laos in the northeast, bordering Vietnam in the east and southeast, and facing the Gulf of Siam in the south. The territory of Cambodia shaped like dish basin, surrounded by hills and mountains on three sides, and a vast and rich plain in the middle, accounting for more than three-quarters of the country's total area.
