Simply incredible. Only the Pyramids had more of a wow factor than the ruins around Angkor Wat. Actually the temples near Angkor Wat were more impressive – Angkor Wat was discovered and cleaned up and maintained while the other areas were left for nature to overgrow. I had signed up to run a half-marathon here in 2014 but cancelled because I would not have made the 3 hour cutoff. Another culture with an impressive civilization from 1,000 years ago that seems to have disappeared.
Accommodation and logistics worked out great here….small hotel via AirBNB that arranged airport and bus transfers and I booked my tuk-tuk to tour the temples from there as well. Siem Reap a great little town as well – even had a visa cash advance place which gave me enough cash to make it to Singapore eventually.
