You don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate the magnificence of Cambodia’s enormous temple complex. Angkor Wat is considered one of the largest religious monuments in the world. The entire site spans more than 160 hectares and is scattered with hundreds of ancient temples from the 12th century Khmer Empire. Unfortunately, most visitors stick to the main buildings, causing a lot of congestion on foot and on the roads.
