Angkor crowned as the Best Place to visit in Southeast Asia


Angkor in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province came first among the 29 Best Places to Visit in Southeast Asia, according to a survey of Touropia Travel Guides.

“When it comes to archeological sites, travelers won’t want to miss Angkor in northern Cambodia. It contains some of the world’s most important cultural remains. These include the enormous Angkor Wat temple, the Bayon temple with its multitude of massive stone faces, and Ta Prohm, a Buddhist temple ruin entwined with towering trees,” said Touropia. Other Cambodian cities – Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville – won the 20th and 28th places, respectively.

Bali of Indonesia and Ha Long Bay of Vietnam are the two runners-up, while Vientiane capital of Laos is at the bottom of the list. C. Nika – AKP
