The temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia are some of the most inspired religious monuments ever built; their beauty, symmetry, and mystery defy description. As a backdrop to these sites, densely forested mountain ranges meet fertile plains where spices and coffee are grown and harvested. Meanwhile, the Mekong River, which flows through Cambodia, creates more than 4,000 river islands.
