The Old City is at the heart of modern Jerusalem. It is divided into 4 distinct quarters, each with its own individual character, but the most fun you can have is wandering through the meandering maze of markets in the Arab quarter, haggling with stall owners over the price of a backgammon set or an ashtray whilst listening to their (sometimes rather good) impersonations of Del Boy saying 'luverly jubberly mate'.
It is part of the Angkor temple complex, one of the smaller sites that is far less known by the casual tourist.
Anyone planning on visiting Siem Reap and going to experience the treasures of Angkor needs to know that Angkor Wat is just one of dozens of sites in the immediate vicinity - it is the biggest and undoubtedly the most impressive, but is also incredibly crowded and not particularly relaxing.
Many of the other temples - such as Ta Prom - are far smaller, but also far less busy - when we went to Ta Prom, we had it to ourselves for about an hour, and wondered around Indiana Jones style and were blown away by the serenity and beauty - highly recommended.
