Hiking in Angkor
Angkor Thom was a large city built in the 12 century and what remains of it is a huge complex that you can spend hours exploring. This site in particular is known for the Bayon temple, or the temple with many grinning faces. While that temple is stunning, what makes Angkor Thom so amazing is the fact that there are tons of temples and ruins to explore within the same site.

The scale, beauty, and complexity of this area makes it the perfect place to hike around just for the sake of hiking. While Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm are much more popular, Angkor Thom was one of my favorite temples. It's much more secluded and the scale is so large that you can walk around without ever seeing another person.
