Myanmar was the first Southeast Asian country we visited. That’s why we were pretty nervous prior to the journey, but as we arrived there, we instantly fell in love with this wonderful country and the kindhearted people.
During our time in Myanmar, we had a tight program that took us to different places all over the country: the charming cities Yangon and Mandalay with their surroundings, the beautiful ancient city of Bagan, a short and cooling stay in Kalaw, and the impressive and relaxing Inle Lake.
We compiled a few impressions of our journey in March 2016 and hope we can inspire some of you to visit this great place that has so much to offer…
We decided to spend new year in Cambodia. It was a great decision. We fell in love with this country. Not only the amazing temples let us feel like this, it was more the kindness of the people living here.
The first few days we spend exploring the temples by ourself and chilling at the 200 m long pool of the fantastic Angkor Village Resort. After new year, we went on a guided 4-day tour with Régis Binard from Angkor Travel Photography, which was great as we got to know places away from the tourist trails. We can fully recommend this tour! Get in love with the country, meet locals and improve your photography skills.
It’s very easy to move around in Siem Reap by yourself. You can find a tuktuk or taxi everywhere on the street or book it at the hotel. The driver will carry you the whole day from sunrise to sunset. Or you can rent a bike, if you want to be more active.
Our five favorite temples in the Angkor area you must visit at your stay in Cambodia. You will recognize them from web and TV. Did you know that one of them was location for the Tomb Raider movie? Do you know which one?
