The Endless Splendor of Angkor Wat

AwayLands_AngkorWat2016_008 AwayLands_AngkorWat2016_002

It’s hard to fully describe Angkor Wat, a site so grand that entire city of Siem Reap was built around it. A labyrinth of ancient temples built nearly 1,000 years ago, and the largest religious site in the world – it is the icon against which all others are measured. The complex feels truly endless, you could keep going and going forever and never reach an end – until the endless heat mixed with the mandatory dress code limits runs through all of the energy you have to give, and by the afternoon the only thing you’re dreaming of is jumping into a pool. However, the site offers multi-day tickets – I gladly would have gone back and run through more temples a second day if we had had the time.
