The Kingdom of Cambodia was ranked among the 10 coolest places to go in the next 10 years by Forbes.
“Cambodia is […] opening this month (November), and the idea of seeing Angkor Wat without the crowds is amazing,” the well-known American magazine said.
The other nine coolest places are Bend, Oregon (the United States); Cashel Country Tipperary, Ireland; Costa Rica; the Galápagos, Ecuador; the Caribbean island of Grenada; Mexico; Patagonia; Puerto Rico Islands; and Transylvania, Romania.
Recently, the Angkor Wat Temple of Cambodia, a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, was crowned the most famous temple in Asia, according to Touropia Travel Guides.
“Angkor Wat (”City Temple”) is a vast temple complex at Angkor, built for king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. Angkor Wat stands on a raised terrace above the rest of the city. It is made of three rectangular galleries rising to a central tower, each level higher than the last. It is the only temple at Angkor to have remained a religious centre since its construction, first as a Hindu temple then as a Buddhist temple,” Touropia said.
