First time South Asia. Is this best choice ?

Hello,

We are stopping in Singapore en route from the US to India. Have explored Singapore before and

were planning on exploring more of SE Asia. Angkor Wat is a potential destination and we know we'll love it, but is Cambodia the best choice in ease of travel from Singapore? What else MUST one do besides Angkor? Any other suggestions in SE Asia?

Angkor Wat is only one of many many temples in the Angkor Park, and you can also spend some time exploring Tonle Sap and the floating villages.

check out canbypublications.com/siemreap/srstarted.htm for info on the temples and explore the site further for info about the lake.

Check the 'things to do' in the green bar at the top of this page for other ideas

and www.travelfish.org is aother great site that is full of really useful info

allow yourself a min of 3-4 clear days in SR to scratch the surface

we visited Siem Reap earlier this year. Angkor Wat was everything I had hoped for. You can feel the history around you. I loved it. We were only there for a few days, then went to Thailand. We loved Cambodia so much we are going back to explore for four months soon. I preferred Cambodia to Thailand because it seemed a lot slower and less touristy, although there is much to see. If you do go to Siem Reap, please, please try to get the the circus Phare. It is performed by young disadvantaged teenagers and is absolutely amazing. It was $15 each and well worth it.
