Recent Satellite photos have revealed that Angkor spread over 400 square miles making it the largest preindustrial center in the world. Here are some of the best. The immense Khmer empire from the 9th to the 15th C century stretched over present day Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam all the way to India. At Angkor it created a sophisticated network of hydraulic canals and rice paddies that supported over a million people and left architectural monuments that are as overwhelming as ancient Egypt. The ruins of Angkor have been declared a Unesco World Heritage site. In 1431 enemy armies invaded and sacked Angkor. The population left , the region was abandoned and most of this incredible culture was swallowed up by the jungle.

But it has been famous for 2 thousand years. Did you know Cleopatra used to come here because she loved the beaches and its balmy weather? Today Brits and Russians still crowd its beaches. But there are plenty of other things to do and see. Take the city of Paphos for instance. The beautiful 4 star Almyra Hotel is built right on the water . Here you can get a massage and look at the medieval castle from the days of the Crusades right across the harbour. Take this church from the 13th century. St Paul was chained to this pillar and flogged for preaching Christianity. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. You can walk to the archeological city which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980. Here rich Romans built their villas with great mosaics on the floor. Look carefully at these people drinking wine…. Sun and breezes means grapes and those Romans loved Cyprus wine. It’s vintage time and OLYMPUS winery in the Trodos mountains is busy picking grapes. South of Paphos is the Rock of Aphrodite, where according to legend Aphrodite the goddess of love sprung out of the water. In Limassol the famous Crusader Knights built this castle in the middle of vineyards, A thousand years ago they produced a dessert wine called Commanderia still enjoyed today. Here it is also wine festival time, where wineries from all over Cyprus come to pitch their wines. Cyprus although a very small island ranks 37th in wine production in the world. Going East are great beaches and sports activities Then some culture, visiting these grottos carved in the rocks where monks used to live and pray. Wow! Keo is a major winery producing world class wines. Finally, time to relax on endless beaches and secluded coves… Cleopatra was right! Cyprus is a magical place!
