As my top five cities entry probably indicates, when I travel, much of what I prioritize is visiting historical sites, especially ancient ones.
It's hard to narrow a large list of amazing places down to a top 5. But this represents my best effort. Here goes.
1. Angkor Wat
OK, this one was easy. There is nowhere more spectacular that I have been than Angkor.
Undoubtedly, if you travel there today, it will be much more touristy than it was when I visited in 2002....
