Having visited Angkor, Bagan and many others, i would say this was one of my favorites! A very special and significant historical sight in a fascinating complex. I would go with a guide to get the most from it!

Seeing it in person is a whole other experience. The pyramid is a beautiful structure, that has been preserved throughout all of these years. Such interesting history

This is the main building at the Chichen Itza site. Lots of other things to do there, and lots of people wanting to sell stuff.
