The amount of temples and structures at Angkor complex is overwhelming. There is so much to see and explore. The main temple, Angkor Wat, is one of the most recognizable. When you think of Cambodian ruins, the image of Angkor Wat easily comes to mind. Angkor Wat itself, is quite big and includes a other smaller structures and a marketplace for souvenirs.
Unfortunately, when we visited, the main temple was under construction. There was a horrible green tarp over a very visible section. There were also heaps of tourists, which got annoying after a while. The temple itself wasn't what I expected and I'm not sure it was my favorite, but it's one of those things you have to see when you go to Angkor. It's like going to Paris and skipping out on the Eiffel Tower, you just don't do it.
