For We Run Asia’s last two episodes for the year, we head to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam for unique running experiences that hit two birds with one stone, satisfying the desire to run whilst discovering less-explored areas of tourist magnets.
The Thai capital’s streets are buzzing and narrow—admittedly not the best running spots. Turn into Bangkok’s hidden alleyways and the Lumphini Sky Lane to get away from the traffic of this bustling city. See how in the Thailand episode.
The majority of travellers fly into Siem Reap, Cambodia for the iconic 12th century temple complex of Angkor Wat. But for runners, the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon is the event of the year. Did you know that you don’t need to wait for the race to run around the vast Angkor Archaeological Park, encompassing several sites beyond Angkor Wat? Just be mindful that there is a dress code for active temples and plan for the weather. See more in the video below.
