Here is an Angkor Wat news aggregator so we can see what’s up with our favorite historical site more easily. Search terms used to generate these articles are Angkor Wat and Siem Reap.
I find that reading these news quickly, before and after my trip, gives another added dimension to the Angkor Wat that I’ve enjoyed, and they also let you know the different ways to enjoy Siem Reap and Angkor Wat.
For example, if you’ve read reports about the temples crumbling, you’ll become more aware of the delicate state of the temples and ruins. If you’ve read reports about the feud that is going on between the Thai and Cambodian border in regards to a massive temple, you might want to steer clear on that area during your visit (or head right on to see what’s up!).
In short, knowing just a little bit about things outside the ‘tourism’ industry would enhance your visit a great deal.
