The ancient temples and cities of Angkor are one of my top historic destinations around the world. The city had a million inhabitants at a time when London only had 50,000 and the temples are an amazing sight to behold.
As more people have discovered this gem, flights to Siem Reap, your base to explore Angkor Wat, have become cheap and low-cost carriers serve it from most major cities in the region. To get into the mood, you are checking into the Petite Temple Suite with its Khmer decor, cool pool and included breakfast. After seeing the temples by day, you can walk into town at night and enjoy the great food, bars, spas and shops! You can check prices for hotels in Siem Reap here!
After 3 days of exploring Khmer history and enjoying the nightlife, you fly to Sihanoukville to relax on Cambodia’s best beaches. The Good Time Boutique Hotel on Otres Beach is new and steps from the beach and plenty of restaurants. You can go for long walks along miles of sandy beach, go for a swim in the ocean or hotel pool or just enjoy the sun and do nothing! You can check prices for hotels on Otres Beach here!
