If you are a traveller that likes exploring the mysterious places engulfed in rich history, then Cambodia should be on your bucket list.
From backpackers to photographers, history buffs and luxury tourists, Cambodia has a place for them all. A boutique hotel in Siem Reap will be equal to a luxury resort like the Anantara Angkor Resort and, therefore, the luxury travellers have an ample choice of places to stay at. As for the budgeted backpackers, there are plenty of comfy hostels and bed and breakfasts for you too.
The stunning architecture, religious history, mythical statues and untouched jungles are some of the many reasons as for why you’d fall in love with Cambodia.
The name rings a bell? Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument on Earth and was originally built as a Hindu temple for Lord Vishnu and was later converted into a Buddhist temple in the 14th century. The Khmer architecture, intricately carved statues and inscriptions have so much history etched onto them and you’d easily spend hours inside the temple, gasping at every detail.
This archaeological site dates back to 928 AD and has more than 42 structures within the ruins, and of them, all the Prasat Thom is the most prominent one. This 98 feet tall sandstone temple has a Mayan look to it and makes you feel like you have time travelled into the past.
