The faded “No Climbing” signs are no match for the tourists jostling to capture that perfect shot of the sun setting over the temple of Angkor Wat, Cambodia’s most famous attraction.
The view is stunning but the chaotic scene at Phnom Bakheng, also known as the sunset temple, is not exactly relaxing and it can be a struggle to even get a picture with no strangers in it.
Visitors to Angkor National Park topped 1.15 million in 2010, up 25 per cent on the previous year. And at tourist spots across the region it’s a similar story.
