    Hey gang, I'm headed to South east Asia for 3 1/2 weeks. Northern Thailand is already on the agenda...but with a trip to either Cambodia to see Angkor Wat or to Myanmar (Burma) to see Bagan, also known as Pagan. If you had to choose between the two, which one would you choose?

    I have never been to Myanmar, but I have been to Cambodia a few times. I really loved my visit to Angkor Wat and especially Bayan Temple.

    Angkor wat is the more spectacular but Bagan and Burma in general would be my choice above Cambodia as it is far less touristy, but you can't go wrong with either for interesting places and friendly people.

    Angkor Wat is well worth the hype and Cambodian people are some of the most friendly in the world. Go there and you will not be disappointed .
