I'm toying with the idea of going over to Cambodia and seeing Ankor Wat, the genocide museum and the killing fields. But how long do you all think this would take?
I've been volunteering in Vietnam for about a month now and my younger brother is coming over around the 5th, into Ho Chi Minh City. Its his first time travelling like, anywhere, so really want to make it special for him.
Any help would be greatly appreciated~!
Angkor is one of the greatest temples on earth and well worth the effort to get there and would certainly be a special introduction to the big wide world out there. More low key would just be a trip into the delta; Mytho and Cantho etc which I have always also found pretty special. about 10 years ago
There are also the Cu Chi tunnels near Ho Chi Minh city that are worth a visit and the War Remnants museum that displays weapons systems, photography and other items from the war.
As for Cambodia, we spent 5 days there recently and visited the genocide museum (aka S-21) and killing fields in Phnom Penh and then travelled up to Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat and the other nearby temples. This was probably the best part of the trip and Cambodia is worth seeing even if you don't visit the tourist locations. about 10 years ago
