While in Southeast Asia, we almost bypassed Cambodia – but we now know that would have been a mistake! Our last-minute decision to fly to Siem Reap on route from Vietnam to Thailand meant we would only have a week in the country, which was just enough time to thoroughly sightsee Angkor Wat and get a good feel for the city of Siem Reap. We spent one full day at Angkor Wat with a guide – and then returned a second day for sunrise and exploration of more temples on our own (with the help of our awesome tuk-tuk driver!). In the Siem Reap city center, we marveled at the lively atmosphere in the markets and drank with fellow tourists on Pub Street.
