1. Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Many tourists from around the world flock to the lotus shaped flowers and the largest religious structure in the world, that being the Angkor Wat in the country of Cambodia. God-Kings between the 9th and 13th centuries ordered this great religious site as homage to themselves. In the 15th century the site that holds Angkor Wat was abandoned, but still ongoing archaeological research is constantly finding hundreds more temples around the massive Angkor Wat. 25km from the main site is Capitol Temple and this is a must-see tourist hotspot.
