Cambodia's decision came as a shock to both tourists visiting the country and its Angkor temples, as well as environmental organizations fighting to improve the fate of captive elephants. Angkor is Cambodia's biggest tourist attraction and one of the biggest in Asia, if not the world. The huge temple complex in the former capital of the Khmer Empire, which existed in Indochina and Malaya from the 9th to the 15th centuries, attracts thousands of people. At 162 hectares, Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world.

It requires a ride. Getting there on foot is almost impossible, so thousands of tourists use tuktuks, cars, scooters and bicycles. However, elephants were a very popular means of transportation at Angkor. And it's been that way for years.
