Angkor, Cambodia - Did you knew...

Angkor, Cambodia - Did you knew...
...that the temples of Angkor are the largest ruins in the world and the only archaeological site which is visible from outer space.
...that Angkor was the most populous city of antiquity with approx. one million inhabitants.
...that the fate of Angkor is a warning to the modern world, that we are part of nature and must live within natural laws or face our ecological nemesis.
...that Angkor was one of the most powerful, wealthy and populous civilisations in ancient history.
...that Angkor was larger than Rome or any of the ancient Chinese cities.
