Watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia has been described as being akin to something from another world.
Writing for DesMoinesRegister.com, Jared Gettler said that this sight was one of the highlights of his backpacking trip across south-east Asia, which included visits to Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
He said that out of all of the countries he visited Cambodia provided the biggest surprises, as it was the place he knew the least about.
Mr Gettler stated that Angkor Wat is the reason why most people head to Cambodia but pointed out that there are various other points of interest for adventure travellers.
"Many people go only to see Angkor Wat but there are many more temples around Siem Reap and Cambodia. I felt like I was on another planet when I went to Angkor Wat to watch the sun rise over the temple," he added.
Natalie Paris, writing in the Daily Telegraph, recently suggested visitors to Cambodia should spend some time in Phnom Penh, which is home to the Royal Palace among other attractions.
