Cambodia travel insurance

Before traveling to Cambodia, remember that it is necessary to take out good travel insurance to cover any incident you may have on your vacation.

exist two circuits, the Little, which is 17 km long and includes the temples of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom (Bayon, Baphuon, Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, Preah Palilay, Terrace of the Leper King, Terrace of the Elephants, the Keangs and the Prasat Suor Prat), Phnom Bakheng, Baksei Chamkrong.
