The plain is peppered with ruins dating back several centuries and will instantly have you feeling like Indiana Jones on one of his quests. Once your day of temple-hunting is done, relax in one of Siem Reap‘s best hotels, Belmond La Residence d’Angkor, located a stone’s throw from the temples.

Then, end your holiday in Song Saa, one of Cambodia’s most exclusive resorts, located off the coast of Sihanoukville, on its very own island. A heavenly beach retreat that will have you feeling rested and rejuvenated in no time.
