Some more Angkor Temples

Before I came to Cambodia, a friend told me that the temples would be crawling with tourists - the best temples would look just like the photos, but covered in tourists. She was right - the temples of Angkor sure are popular. Some groups can be very rude and stand in front just as you're just about to take a photo, but most people are very friendly and will take turns posing for photos, keeping out of each other's way as best they can. It is possible to get lucky and visit a popular temple when it is practically deserted. And even at the busier times, you can probably find a quiet corner to sit and pretend you're the only one there.
