13 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Cambodia

We could only fit one week of Cambodia into our itinerary, which was a shame because this country is pretty remarkable. From its ancient temples to its tragic past, Cambodia is rich with culture, beauty and history. From the two cities I visited, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, these are my favorite shots I was able to capture:

1. Bayon, my favorite temple in Angkor

The Killing Fields were where over 1 million Cambodians were executed by the Khmer Rouge regime. They kept pits like this to stack bodies – this one in particular was for people that were beheaded. Visitors leave bracelets in honor of those who died just 40 years ago.

7. Gorgeous details on these ancient temples
