Angkor

IMG_9822

There are many temples to discover within the Khmer Empire ruins; you probably need a month to throughly visit them all! Unless you are an archaeologist, realistically, one would dedicate one full day to explore the Angkor (city). In this post I’ve compiled the important spots to cover (in bold), and also what to look out for while at the spot itself (underlined). You may also find the cost breakdown below to give you a rough idea on how much to spend. ;)

Entrance fee: USD20
Tour Guide (optional): USD25
Tuk – tuk Fee (1 Day): USD15
TOTAL: USD60
