I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Siem Reap and Cambodia’s UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Archeological Park. It’s a fascinating place and I’ve learned a lot about how to best see the temples, what to do before and afterward, and how to avoid the often relentless crowds.
I’ve written about Cambodia frequently, hoping to share what I’ve learned with other travellers. I was really chuffed when the Managing Editor of Fodors.com, Rachael Levitt, recently called out one of the articles I wrote for Fodor’s. She said my “incredible tips and tricks” make her feel like she can finally go to Angkor “properly” and “without losing [her] mind in the throngs”. Well, now I do feel like a bit of an expert!
