Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

Visit Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

Introduction

Cambodia's most iconic landmark and cultural heart, Angkor Wat, is the reason that most people visit the charming riverside town of Siem Reap, in north-west Cambodia.

The intricately detailed temple complex is just one of a number of Khmer monuments buried in dense jungle just a few kilometres outside of Siem Reap.

Together they comprise the remnants of the ancient capital of the powerful Khmer Empire - the first urban centre in the world to reach one million inhabitants.

In recent years Siem Reap has established itself as a fashionable destination full of boutique hotels, stylish bars and fine French-influenced restaurants.

The nearby monuments of Angkor Thom and Ta Phrom are also worthy of exploration to get a feel for this vast expanse and its history.

Ta Phrom provides an indication of how the early explorers would have discovered Angkor; twisted fig and banyan trees, whose roots grip the faded masonry like octopus tentacles, overrun this mysterious outlying temple.

Even bigger than the Angkor Wat complex is the colossal city of Angkor Thom.
