Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is without a doubt one of the most well-known tourist attractions in the world. The ancient city complex stands in remarkable condition, mostly unravished by time. The complex is located just outside of Siem Reap near Cambodia’s western border with Thailand. I would personally suggest allocating the majority of a day to spend there exploring and taking in how truly amazing the site is. I also suggest hiring a local tuk tuk driver to take you from one site to another at the complex as the city is large and spread out over a wide area. If you are able to, I highly suggest arriving before the sunrise in order to watch it rise over the reflective pools in front of the most famous part of the city. If you are interested, there are elephant riding tours through certain parts of the city. Visiting this ancient city is, in my opinion, something that everyone should do before they die.

  1. How was your experience at sunrise? We were disappointed, as nothing significant really happened. Guess we weren’t that lucky. Besides that, the trip was wonderful.
