One of the sights I was most excited about seeing on my trip was Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Angkor Wat is really just one temple in a huge complex of temples, but it’s the most famous one. So after spending a few days in Phnom Penh, I booked a mini van shuttle to Siem Reap and booked a room at Mother Home Guesthouse for a few nights. (This turned out to be one of the best places I’ve stayed on my entire trip, and it was nice hotel at hostel prices.) The temple complex is one of those places where I just couldn’t stop taking pictures, so I thought I’d share some of them with you here.
I booked a three day ticket to the temples, and I think that was a good amount of time. I highly recommend getting to Angkor Wat super early at least one morning to see the sunrise. It’s truly amazing.
Having a tuk-tuk drive me around to see a bunch of different temples and other parts of the complex was really worth it. Some temples are really popular while others hardly have any other tourists. Some are in good condition while others are really crumbling. But the whole place is fascinating. And huge. You’ll never get to everything, but that’s ok.
