Angkor Wat, Cambodia. That’s where trees grow on top of 1,000 year old temples.
I first went there ten years ago. It’s definitely worth seeing. But if you go to visit, let me offer two tips.
- Never drink water from a Cambodian tap.
- If you buy bottled water, examine the seal and the bottom of the bottle.
Some of the locals might look for easy money and pour tap water in.
I drank from one of those bottles. It gave me giardia for Christmas. It’s a microscopic parasite that can make you nauseous, bloated and smellier than a sewer. My doctor ordered a colonoscopy. That’s when they put a camera where the sun doesn’t shine. I didn’t like it very much.
