Explore Ancient Temples: Cambodia
The temperate, dry winter season is the best time to visit Cambodia (summertime tends to be oppressively hot, rainy and humid). Visitors flock to the Angkor area to discover hundreds of ruined temples dating back to the Khmer empire of the 9th through 13th centuries. Of course, the crown jewel is the five-towered Angkor Wat, the world's largest religious building. To fully appreciate the rich details of the temple's bas-relief scenes and carvings, hire a knowledgeable local guide.
