Hi everyone. Please Help - I am going to spend 3 weeks in Thailand and am thinking since I'm taking this long trip maybe I should also visit for 3-4 days either Siem Reap (Angkor Wat, etc) or Kuala Lumpur (towers, etc). I am interested in sightseeing, experiencing the culture, and nightlife. Which one do you recommend?? (please make this simple for me!:-)

I hear alot about Angkor Wat, they say it's even more interesting than Pyramids in Egypt but the problem is the flight, from Bangkok, it's US$200 one way weird!!

Thanks alot

Check out flight from Bangkok to Phnom Phen via Air Asia.
I think the flight is a lot cheaper.

If it's culture you want then I would definatley go for Siem Reap. I liked KL but it's a big city much the same as other big cities and as impressive as the Petronas Towers are you can only take so many pictures of them!

Siem Reap is a great place and it has the obvious attraction of having Angkor Wat. Nightlife is good in Siem Reap too.

Happy travelling!
