Angkor – Why would anyone go there?

I arrived to Siem Reap, the gateway to Angkor, after a seven hour bus journey from Phnom Penh. All beaten up and tired? Nope. I had a good time streaming my favourite podcast from the free Wifi on board. I then checked in at a small boutique hotel with a colonial touch and had a drink at [...]
