This is a little overdue, but in early January Matt and I spent three days at the Temples of Angkor.
We thought about writing a long, beautiful post full of great description and more but changed our minds. Whatever we would say has already been said and pictures are better.
Here are a few fun photos. Seriously, like 1/1000th of what we took.
We followed this itinerary And it was great!
Our only suggestion would be to skip sunset at Angkor Wat. Sunrise there is so magical and seeing the temple for the first time as it emerges from darkness would be inspiring. Also, if you do sunrise, turn right. Everyone goes left off of the path but if you go right it will feel like you have the whole temple to yourself.
Be prepared to be exhausted and skip a few things. It’s bloody hot.
