Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat

The heart of the immense Angkor complex, seat of the Khmer Empire from the 9th to 15th centuries, Angkor Wat has become the symbol of Cambodia and an absolute must-visit. The best preserved of all of Angkor’s temples as it was never abandoned, the wat’s symmetrical beauty is breathtaking from a distance. It is up close however, you will discover the uniqueness, detail and intricacies that make Angkor Wat one of the world’s greatest structures. Although often busy, it is still easy to escape and find an old passageway lined with exquisitely crafted apsaras and bas reliefs to explore all to yourself.
