We took a short flight from Ho Chi Minh City (during our honeymoon) to visit Angkor, one of the most important archaeological sites of Southeast Asia. We stayed at the luxury hotel Sarai Resort & Spa, and spent one full day exploring this spectacular ancient city by tuk-tuk. We recommend to watch the sunrise (or sunset), it's amazing to see the sun slowly rise behind the magical Angkor Wat.
