A few years ago, I was on my ‘Asian tour’. I’ve visited a couple of countries and explored tourist destinations. Why Asia? It’s a lot easier to blend in, similarities with the Filipino culture, and some countries don’t require visas (at least for Philippine passport holders).
Cambodia was the second country on my tour. Why I chose Cambodia? I was in Vietnam and it’s easy to cross to Cambodia. Also, I wanted to see Angkor Wat temple. I’m a big fan of history and I love to hear stories behind those ancient structures. Not to mention some scenes of Angeline Jolie’s Tomb Raider movie were shot in Angkor Wat.
If you want to explore Angkor Wat, you will need to stay for a few days to a week to explore all different temples. Don’t forget to watch the sunset in Phnom Bakheng. I’ve been there and it was glorious (on a nice weather of course)!
