65+ year old male
I am 65+, single and now retired from my Sheep and Wool Grazing business. I thoroughly enjoy touring the South East Asian countries. I find the people are very pleasant and in some form "humble". One must remind themselves when touring a country like Cambodia that the people have suffered many hardships throughout history. A $1 tip is always appreciated.

Angkor Wat is on about 200 hectares and according to Coedes, "is a replica of the universe in stone". Surrounded by a moat, you cross by a huge causeway made of sandstone blocks 250 meters long. The galleries of bas-reliefs picture the history of the Khmer Empire. Truly, a "Wonder of the World".
This "drag show" is very well presented and is suitable to all. The auditorium is superb and the performers are very talented. After the show you have the opportunity to have your photo taken with the performers. For a great night out, go to this attraction.
