    Very important to take some sort of mosquito repellent, as there were some vicious ones when we visited in March this year. Most important when dining out at night - as we had some nasty red spots for days after forgetting.

  • Preparation for Your Angkor Wat Visit

    Most travellers would've done 'research' on Angkor Wat and Siem Reap before reaching the place. Some'll buy books and maps to get most comprehensive info to this yet-to-be-popular tourist spot.

    I would advice all travellers to any destination to bring at least one empty bag. Wear comfortable walking/climbing shoes.

    Ladies who visit Cambodia and use tampons should be sure to pack extra supplies just in case.

    Backpack is essential. It's tough going trying to get on and off small wooden boats with a bloody suitcase! Sandals are great but boots are often better for getting from one locale to the next if you are lugging a pack around. Wide angle is the best for taking the full grandeur of Angkor Wat in and a zoom is great for taking sneaky monk...
