Called the 'Gateway to the ruins of Angkor', Siem Reap is a beautiful resort town that's located in the North West of Cambodia. From the 9th to the 15th the city was the seat of the Khmer Kingdom and you can find many of the remnants of this era, still standing tall and proud to this day. The best of these is the magnificent Angkor Wat Temple. This temple and all the other stone buildings of Angkor have been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Istanbul, Turkey

Historically known as Byzantium and Constantinople, Istanbul has been for centuries past, the melting pot of Europe and Asia. Even today you can see this unique blend of culture and architecture. Joining together the two continents through the Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul is Turkey's most populous city and the centre of its economy, culture, and history.
Many remnants of Istanbul's glorious past still remain today in excellent condition. The pride of place among these is the Hagia Sophia. Formerly a Greek Orthodox patriarchal basilica, Hagia Sophia was later transformed into a mosque. However, in modern times, it is used as a museum.

One of the most engaging things to do in Istanbul is to go on a shopping spree at bazaars like the Grand Bazaar, said to be one of biggest in the world. You will come across so many curiosities here.

Tulips are a symbol of Istanbul and if you're in Istanbul during the month of April make sure to visit parks such as Emirgan where breathtaking tulip festivals are held every year!
