ANGKOR PARK, CAMBODIA
Angkor Wat is the largest religious structure in the world. The locals guide you to the different temples one by one - avoiding the hottest parts of the day. The key to Angkor Park is to hit the popular spots at the start of open hours, stay out of the sun (as much as possible), bring more water than you think you need (our Tuk Tuk driver Mr. Chun kept a cooler under our seats), bring your own travel guide book, bring a snack (I always carry a clif bar on me), wear comfortable walking shoes, be respectful, and keep an open mind.
We let our tuk tuk driver Mr. Chun lead us through.
The first day we started out at 7a.m. and were done around noon. The heat of the day bears down on you just around lunchtime.
