When I ask someone overseas where in Indochina they want to visit, almost everyone will focus only on the same big cities and hotspots including Hanoi – the capital city of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, Halong Bay, Phnom Penh, or Siem Reap – the gateway to the Angkor Wat and the UNESCO Heritage Site itself.

Along back roads and far out farmlands is a tranquil collection of temples, pagodas, ceremonial gates, streams, traditional wooden houses, and gardens that do not get much attention they deserve. Seated in the heart of the natural wilderness are abandoned sites – the most majestic places in the area, with serene and blissful surroundings, often passed by as they are seemingly considered meaningless! But you never know when you could be missing out on an incredible occasion to know more about a hidden gem among what appears to be a plot of nothingness.
