From the Archive: Angkor Wat Stone Buddha, Cambodia
To think Angkor Wat was lost for years, hidden in thick jungle growth, only to be found one day by accident, really is something to think about. A bit like the Terra Cotta Warriors in China.
If you are ever in South East Asia, make sure Angkor Wat is on your list of places to visit. Getting up early is the way to go, as it is the best way to avoid the heaviest of the crowds.
A simply amazing historical and cultural site.
