The Mother of all Temples

“The Temples of Angkor – the heart and soul of the Kingdom of Cambodia”

After all the temples I’ve visited throughout SE Asia – None can come close to Angkor Wat! It really doesn’t come any bigger than this. Angkor Wat is one of those places that you have to see before you die! I repeathave to see before you die! Trust me – you wouldn’t want to miss this divine beauty!! It took me four and a half hours just to walk through the entire temple and try to take in the extensive base-reliefs and structure. That’s how massive and astonishing it is!!
