[Sunrise over Angkor Wat]
As the worlds largest religious monument and a UNESCO world heritage site, Angkor Wat has a lot to live up to. That’s the issue I often face when visiting famous monuments. You hear and read about all these amazing sites, inflating your expectations, and feel somewhat let down when you get there since it’s not as “grand” as seen in the pictures. I’ve learned to visit worldly sites with no expectations and an open mind. Each one holds so much history and a reason for its renowned world recognition. Angkor was just that.
