Allotting 1 day to explore the Angkor temple complex is squeezing in too much. This is what I learned when a friend and I had this trip in 2013. Because we only had limited time, we wanted to see as many temples as we can. However, I realized it’s best experienced slowly (and with some quiet time despite the tourist crowds) to better appreciate each structure’s history, architecture and intricate design. Besides, given the weather in Cambodia, it can get exhausting after around 5-6 temples.
