Angkor Wat in Cambodia
Visitors walk the ruins of Bayon in the center of Angkor Thom May 27, 2002 in Angkor, Cambodia. Built as a Buddhist temple around 1300 A.D., just after the construction of Angkor Wat nearby, Angkor Thom served as the center for the Khmer Empire, despite being physically threatened under the Khmer Rouge regime of the 1970-80s. As restoration efforts continue to preserve the many temples in Angkor, tourism also has boomed in recent years. (Photo by David Greedy/Getty Images)
