I heard someone say once that the only big tourist attractions in the world that are not overrated are the America’s Grand Canyon, China’s Great Wall, and Cambodia’s Angkor Wat. While I might not agree with that completely, it’s true that the Angkorian temples are amazing. I’ve visited them twice: the first time was during the dry season in January, and the second was during the rainy season in August. Angkor Wat itself is big and beautiful, but it’s also crowded and empty. It reminded me of Beijing’s Forbidden City in that regard. It’s the other temples, especially the ones that are falling down, that I think really make the place worth visiting. Below are more than 40 photos of Angkor Wat and a handful of other temples in the area.
