Cambodia, One of the 10 Coolest Places to Go in Next 10 Years

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.
