TripAdvisor has named the world's most popular landmark for 2017, and no, it's not Machu Picchu. This year, Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia pipped Peru's bucket-list destination to be the biggest landmark for the year. With more than two million people visiting the site last year, a number that brings in around $US60 million dollars annually to Cambodia.
Siem Reap is the portal for the temples of Angkor, Siem Reap was constantly destined for great points. Site visitors come right here to see the holy places, certainly, yet there is plenty to do in and around the city when you're templed out.
Are you thinking of going for vacation to a destination that relieves you from stress and transports you to that heavenly world of historical bliss? If that is what you intend at doing, then there is no better destination than a tour in Cambodia for experiencing this bliss.
It was an early morning start from River Village Manor Guesthouse in Siem Reap, It was a little previous 4:30 AM and I was one of the very first individuals there. It was still nearly pitch black so I had to utilize my cellular phone's LCD show to light the way. Without it, I probably would have tripped and fallen under the moat.
Must see Documentaries and Movies before visiting Cambodia. Visiting Cambodia soon? if like me you like to learn about the history of the country you are visiting, I think you will enjoy watching my Top 5. They can be found on YouTube, Amazon, Netflix. Hope you enjoy them.
Traveling by Bus in Cambodia. Flying is quick; about 45 minutes in the air, but you miss so much! Occasionally we make a trip to Phnom Penh and we use the buses most of the time. Not just because its cheap; about $15 each-way, its a great way to see a parts of Cambodia that you would never normally see.
