Indians say one life is not enough to explore every nook and corner of their huge country. This year plan a visit to the north eastern part of the country. North East India houses seven sister stateswhich differs largely from mainland India in terms of customs and rituals. The local culture is very exotic.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Siem reap is a small sound by the ruins of the Ancient Temple Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat remains the largest religious site of the world from an era bygone. A 15 minutes tuk-tuk ride from the downtown of Siem Reap will take you to the temple complex early morning to watch the magnificent sunset. The whole day is at your expense. Explore the ruins at your own pace. We strongly recommend you to take a guide.

Ideally a 3 day stay is recommended in Siem Reap to explore Angkor Wat in all its Glory. At night the city hosts beautiful night market. You can also rent a bike and go on explore the nearby villages Tonle Sap lake and many more local wonders. The simplicity of local life and grandeur of the massive temple structure seamlessly merge with each other.
