In order to experience as much of Angkor as possible, I decided to buy a three-day pass. I assumed it would be more than enough time.
I was wrong.
It’s simply mindblowing how much there is to see; even while trying to plan a route I felt overwhelmed by the sheer scale and scope of it all. Apparently at its peak, Angkor sprawled over 1,000 square kilometers – ten times its closest rival at the time (Tikal, Guatemala). Trying to cover even half that would be like trying to see Paris in your lunch break. It just can’t be done.
…But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t gonna try 🙂
