Cambodia, a small country bordering Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos, is popularized by the abundance of ancient temples and plankton-dotted calm coastlines. This beautiful country has a lot to offer to the more than 1 million annual visitors. Since Angelina Jolie starred as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider film franchise, swinging through the temple ruins in Cambodia, people have been flocking to the country to get a glimpse of its natural and historic beauty. You don’t have to go through ancient ruins to enjoy Cambodia, but instead do these 6 things to make the most out of your travel.
1. Watch the Sunrise at Angkor Wat
One of the most recommended things for tourists to do in Cambodia is checking out the sunrise at Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. Many people will attest to the true beauty of the sun beaming its morning rays over the ancient city. If getting up in before the sunrise seems like a hassle, keep in mind that you’ll most likely have to wake up at around 3:00 AM in order to get a good view since the temple complex is usually brimming with foreigners and locals all year long.
