There are a few ancient manmade sights in the world that simply can’t be described. I have been lucky enough to experience the Taj Mahal and Pompeii and was completely floored by both the scale and preservation of both. Angkor Wat in Cambodia is just as incredible and it is worth en entire trip to Asia just to see it. Technically speaking Angkor Wat is the name of one temple among many surviving from the Angkor empire of ancient Asia. These stone temples litter the countryside around Siem Reap and are perfect fodder for bringing out your inner Indiana Jones (mine lives pretty close to the surface anyway). We spent 4 days in the area and three days visiting the temples. Some of them have been completely restored by archaeologists who took the pile of rubble and put it back together piece by piece using nearly only the original pieces. Others have been left in varying degrees of ruin, some overgrown by dramatic tree roots. It was incredible to explore them all.
