The Angkor Temples
Boy oh boy have I seen some temples during my world travels! Particularly through my extended wanderings across China, India, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. But in terms of grandeur and scale, nothing compares to The Angkor Temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The Angkor Temples are epic in proportion, intricate in detail and sublime in symmetry. These incredible structures are the result of Cambodia’s ancient rulers battling to outdo each other with each ambitious creation. If you’re new to the whole Asian temple thing, you could easily spend an entire week here ticking them all off.
I’ve been lucky enough to chalk off a bunch of these amazing temples over two separate visits. My first experience came way back in 2015 when I concentrated on the so-called big 3, including a dramatic sunset arrival at Angkor Wat. Later on, in early 2020, I spent a day exploring some of the lesser known ruins, as well as heading out to the more isolated Banteay Srei.
