Visiting Cambodia was one of the best trips I’ve taken. Back in New York, it’s hard to believe I was actually ever there. But I was, and it was an experience that I will never forget.
I (well we, but it ended up being just me) booked a full day sunrise tour with Poy Pines (if you’re looking for an English speaking tour guide he is your guide) and we did the four big sites:
Angkor Wat, Angkor Tom, Banteay Srei, and Ta Prohm (aka the Tomb Raider Temple).
PURE MAGIC. I can’t even begin to explain how incredible this part of my trip to Asia was. Seeing the sunrise at Ankor Wat was magical, getting lucky strings from the ladies outside of the buddha at Angkor Tom… it was just the best ever. And (this is not an ad, something comped, or anything), but Poy Pines was the best tour guide ever. He took a ton of photos for me, filled me in on all of the important sites and historical bits… it was awesome, I learned SO MUCH. Highly recommend this day. For everyone.
I am sooooo not a morning person but getting up at 4am for this sunrise was completely worth it!
