Aside from being budget friendly, the country is also rich in antiquity that will make you more urged to visit it. For some guidance on the top tourist destinations, here are the following facts.
First stop, Wat Phnom–a Buddhist temple and is located in Phnom Penh. Considered to be the tallest among religious buildings for its 27meter height, this was made in 1372. Legend explains that Wat Phnom was built as a shelter for Buddha’s four statues along the waters and was explored by a woman named, Penh. Hence, the city name Phnom Penh means ‘hill of Penh’. Its main entrance is guarded by lions and snakes at the grand eastern staircase. When the prayer is granted, a return of offering (such as garland of jasmine, flowers or bananas, of which the spirits love the most) promised when the petition was made. At the eastern staircase, there you will find the ticket office. Removing of shoes is needed as you enter the temple, as a sign of respect.
