The 1st of February, wow, January just flew by here, probably because I had lots to catch up on after being out of the country for 9 weeks. Thanks to Twitter I quickly caught up with any new developments in travel
At the start of the year there are an array of travel awards which I watch with interest, Burma keeps coming up in them. The latest news I received through Twitter were the Wanderlust Travel Awards for and top country to visit is Myanmar, with Bagan number 5 for top city.
Trip Advisor gives Siem Reap in Cambodia the gateway to the Angkor Wat temple complex number 9 top city in the world and Wanderlust magazine Number 10. (Top destination Asian city for Trip Advisor is Siem Reap.)
This town has grown over the years since my first visit in 1999 from a dusty wild west place to a town that now has amazing restaurants, bars, hotels, markets, shops and galleries.
It still caters to all budgets and cuisines but it can be a little sleepy in places.
Myanmar and Cambodia all feature in Conde Nast Traveller best places to go for winter sun.
Join me for a travel photography holiday to Burma or Cambodia: Angkor Wat & Cambodian Life, I look forward to meeting you on one of them.
