The first edition of new my English language guide to Angkor Wat (including Siem Reap and the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh) is hitting shelves this month.
After Moon Cambodia and Spotlight Angkor, this is my third book for Moon Guides and Avalon Publishing.
You can purchase the book on Amazon.
A group of young monks, their robes a luminous orange, cross the causeway. A stone’s throw away, rice paddies and golden temple roofs of Angkor shimmer in the morning sun. Monkeys swing from the trees and elephants stand in the shade nearby, waiting for passengers.
This is the trip of a lifetime. It will leave you with a new sense of wonder — and some great stories to share. Expert traveler Tom Vater tells you everything you need to know to make this trip possible in Moon Angkor Wat: Including Siem Reap & Phnom Penh:
• How to get there, how long it will take, and where to stop along the way — including information on the cities of Siem Riep, Battambang, and Phnom Penh as well as excursions to remote temples
• How to choose the best means of transportation, whether you’re traveling by tuk-tuk, taxi, motorbike, or bicycle
• Background on authentic cultural experiences, from street food feasts to New Year’s celebrations — and where to find them
• Day-by-day itinerary suggestions
