Angkor is Overrun

March 15, 2015 – Cambodia:Day 002

Over this weekend in mid-March, the family and I – along with my wife’s sister – traveled to Cambodia to visit the impressive and historic site known as Angkor.

Dating back to the 12th century, it was not surprising to our family to see this collection of temples and other buildings completely overrun.

Oh, wait, if you think I am talking about Angkor being swamped by trees, vines, and other vegetation, (such as the image below) you would be incorrect.

Simply phrased, this Cambodian heritage is overrun by tourists. Have a looksie…

If you ever have the opportunity, you should visit this impressive historical site. However, just be aware that you will probably be there with thousands of other like-minded folks.
