Site Size & Condition: Large Prasat Prasat Angkor Wat (ប្រាសាទអង្គរវត្ត - Pronounced: Pra-saht Ong-kor Watt)

Needs no introduction and of course, entire books have been written about Angkor Wat so we won't go into any details of the biggest and most famous of them all.

It can get crowded at certain times of the day so all we'd say is optimize your visit by thinking outside the box as much as possible - try and pick a quiet period and spend some time checking out the vast temple's remoter corners. The eastern entrance is far quieter than the western and a stroll around the outside of the moat also affords some great views.
