Discovered in the jungle, the gigantic ruins of Beng Mealea offer fabulous scenery reminiscent of an Indiana Jones movie. Built in the early 12th century, possibly as a prototype to Angkor Wat, this enormous temple complex is surrounded by a huge moat measuring 1.2 by 0.9 km (0.75 by 0.56 mi). Feel the power of nature as you admire intricate stone carvings and finely chiseled blocks of stone covered by lush vegetation. Roots and crowns of ancient trees protruding from even older stone structures provide shade. Some tours include lunch served under a tent next to the ruins, but regardless of how you visit the complex, you should stick to the boardwalks and beware of snakes.

It's quite a distance from Siem Reap, and it's going to be hard working in the scorching heat. It was a ruins that felt more romantic in the situation that it was still in the jungle. However, it seems to have finished removing the land mine at last, but it was a difficult place.
