PEOPLE & CULTURE


Cambodia’s people must be some of the most resilient on the earth. Having experienced tortuous war years, poverty and horror, they still are courteous, friendly and welcoming. You will love the constant array of smiling gentle faces and the best compliment to pay your hosts is to remain cool tempered, calm and ready for a laugh.

Cambodia’s official language is Khmer, and this is spoken by the majority of the population. However, Vietnamese and several Chinese dialects can also be heard. Unlike the languages of Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and China, Khmer is non-tonal and has also picked up and adapted many words from Sanskrit and Pali. Khmer has also borrowed many terms from Chinese and European languages, particularly French. The roots of written Khmer derive from a South Indian alphabet. It uses thirty-three consonants, twenty-four dependent vowels, twelve independent vowels, and diacritic markers. Vowels may be written before, after, over, or under a consonant symbol. 50% of the population is literate.

Cambodia’s population stands at 12 million, of which the Khmer make up 90%. Other groups include Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai and Burmese and various ethnic hill tribes, many of the latter living in the mountainous regions to the north and southwest. The Khmer account for 80% of agricultural workers, while the Vietnamese and Chinese dominate the business sector.

Buddhism has existed in Cambodia since at least the 5th century, and in its earlier form was a type of Theravada Buddhism. Theravada Buddhism has been the Cambodian state religion since the 13th century, and is currently estimated to be the faith of 95% of the population.
