Angkor Wat is one of the most impressive archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. A visit to this incredible site will be an unforgettable experience for any traveler looking to explore ancient history and culture. With two full days at your disposal, you can take advantage of all there is to see and do at Angkor Wat.
The Ifugao Rice Terraces are located in the “Cordilleras”, the rugged mountainous regions of the Northern Philippines. Scattered across swaths of Ifugao and Mountain Provinces, 5 of these breathtaking terraced rice paddies are awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO. These 5 are located in Batad, Bangaan, Hungduan, Kiangan, and Mayoyao. These terraces are an engineering feat as they were carved from the mountains using the most rudimentary of tools about 2 millennia ago.
If I could rank Turkey more than 5 stars, I would. Being the archeological junkie that I am, the entire country is as close to an ancient playground as it gets. It certainly gives Egypt, Angkor Wat, Ancient Rome, and Ancient Greece a run for their money. I’ve read somewhere that Turkey possesses more Greek and Roman ruins than Italy and Greece combined and I honestly believe that assertion. I had visited a total of 10 extraordinary archaeological ruins while backpacking around the entire country through public buses.
