Travel Cambodia Nisha Jha

Angkor Wat

Say Cambodia and they ask “Angkor Wat”? This epic temple is a phenomenon so synonymous with Cambodia that nothing else seems to exist in that country. Not to mention, scores of tourists from all over the world go to just see the sunrise here and then return to their countries. Your trip to Cambodia is incomplete if you do not boast about visiting this temple complex of impressive architecture, a combination of history, and Hindu mythology.

Other temples which I highly recommend are Bayon Temple, Banteay Srei and Ta Prohm where trees and stones compete with each other to tell stories hidden since hundreds of years and where Angelina Jolie’s movie Tomb raider was shot.

No matter what they say, there's more to Cambodia than Angkor Wat, though it is the numero uno reason for going there. NISHA JHA points you to what you should see and do when you're in the Southeast Asian nation.

Nisha Jha is one of a small tribe of Indian women who are solo globe-travellers, having traveled to more than 25 countries. Nothing excites her more than learning and relishing life’s simple little pleasures about new places, people and cultures. Add Voluntourism and trekking to that. She calls her website "Le Monde - A Poetic Travail", where she writes about her sweet and sour experiences from around the globe.

Travel with her on Facebook and Twitter.
