Phnom Penh or Siem Reap

My wife and I are traveling to Thailand for 2 weeks and would like to visit Cambodia for 2 full days.

Not sure if we should visit Phnom Penh or Siem Reap.

12/30: Fly in around noon from Bangkok

12/31: Phnom Penh or Siem Reap

1/1: Phnom Penh or Siem Reap

1/2: Fly in afternoon to BKK

Thank you,

H

Easy decision. Ask yourselves

"Do you want to see a city or do you want to see temples?"

Simple question but I don't actually know which I'd rather see. Which is worth seeing more? In Thailand we will be going to Bangkok and Chiang Mai.

Then most definitely go to Siem Reap. Spend a couple days seeing the temples, they are simply amazing, no place like it in the world!

Then plan a return visit to see more of this amazing country including all the temples you did not have time to see. check out www.canbypunlications.com

I would go to Sukhothai in Thailand instead. This will give you a taste of temples, so that you will know whether you want to do a proper trip to Cambodia.
