Burma vs Ankgor Wat

Jump to last reply

This is a follow-up to a previous posting made last night, as other travelers have convinced me to narrow my plans.

The question: Burma or Angkor Wat (in addition to Bangkok).

If any of you have been to both Burma and AW and can comment on them, much appreciated! I've never been to Asia, and at this point am relying only on what I've read online or in guidebooks.

In February 2013 we will depart Chicago on a Friday night and arrive in Bangkok on their Sunday morning. We plan on 3 days/3 nights in BK to do the urban thing, and would like to go on to one other destination (not two others as originally conceived). We would fly home out of Bangkok the following Sunday or Monday, giving us about 4 days in another locale, depending on interim travel.

I had heard of AW as a once in a lifetime experience. For those who have been there and to Burma, any comments on preference for one or the other? I realize this might be apples and oranges, personal taste, but we are interested in "local folks", scenery, trekking, archeology/temples as opposed to shopping/museums.

Sorry if this post is duplicative, but hoping to get as much input as possible before starting to make more specific plans. Thanks!
