Cambodia - Angor Wat

While searching for the next adventurous place I would like to visit I stumbled upon a site that introduced me to Cambodia. It was not the first time I heard the name, but maybe just like you it was the first time I heard what was there.

The country of Cambodia is found in South East Asia close to Thailand and Vietnam. Phnom Penh is the largest city and also the capital of this country of 14 million.Cambodia has been closed for tourism for years. It was until recently that tourists are allowed to visit. Because of this the country is also very "raw", not much of the westernized culture can be seen in Cambodia. Yet you will be able to find two 5-star hotels in Phnom Penh: The Intercontinental and Raffles Le Royal. Where tourists can stay in style.

Phnom Penh
There is much to see in the city of Phnom Penh. Attractions like the National Museum, Wat Phnom and the Independance monument are visited by hundreds of tourists every day. Furthermore there are markets where you could get great deals on western brands.

Angor Wat

The most stunning attraction though is found outside the capital in Angor. Where you will find the temples of Angor. You might have seen them before in the movie Tomb Raider.Angor Wat is the largest religious building in the world and has drawn visitors from all over the world. This temple was first hindu, then buddhist. It is the most well perseved temple in the area. And definetly a must see.
As you can read Cambodia is definatly the place to visit if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. So let me know of your experience there or if there is anything you would like to add.
