The Grand Tour: French Indochina The year is 1860 and you’re a French explorer and botanist, trekking through relentlessly hot and mosquito ridden jungle in northern Cambodia – a country you have found to be hopelessly undeveloped and unenlightened – when you come across a magnificent overgrown temple complex ‘grander than anything left to us by Greece or Rome’.
