A World Heritage Site and the largest religious monument in the world, Angkor Wat contains some of the greatest masterpieces of Khmer art and architecture in existence. Khmer emperor Suryavarman II had the temple built in the early 12th century, originally dedicating it to the Hindu god Vishnu. By the end of the century, the temple transformed into a Buddhist religious site, which it remains today. Tour the 162.6 hectare (402 acre) complex to see its fantastically detailed and well preserved stone temples. Wear clothes that cover your upper arms and legs down to the knees to adhere to the temple's visitor dress code. A visit to Angkor Wat represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Siem Reap online route maker to plot your vacation.

Incredible Temple. The amount of history here can be explored for days and it’s definitely worth a visit. Go all the way to the top, you get amazing views from there. It is absolutely massive so allow at least 2 hours for the visit and bring some water. Be prepared to walk for a few kilometres and up and and down steep stairs. Have fun!
A visit here provides a ever lasting spiritual experience. If possible, try to arrive so that you can see the sun rise over this wonderful site. In order to fully explore and appreciate these wonderful monuments allow yourself plenty of time, take lots of fluids, sun screen etc as the sun is unrelenting.
