This area was built in early 12th Century, but all I cared about was where they filmed Tomb Raider =). Angkor Wat is actually the name of just one main temple, I visited about 6 different ones . It was hot, so good thing there were ice cream and cold drink vendors at each one - just remember to bring your change. You can get Lonely Planet guides for $1 from the kids there too. After following my traveling ritual and purchasing one magnet for my growing collection, one of my favorite memories was of a little girl so hell-bent on getting me to buy something that she offered 5 for a dollar. Another was having great coffee while sitting on a mat to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat.
