Create an itinerary including Angkor Wat
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.

  • It's one of those places that you need to go and experience for yourself to know how amazing the whole thing is, especially if you're into temples, culture and traditions.

  • This is what we want to see. Very old and grand. Not many people visit. Comfortable to walk around. But a lot of rain. Prepare umbrella and plastic coat.

  • I think that, these kinds of places are meaningful to people because they are natural and people can be there alone, away from their everyday life. I used to go there to be alone or to dream with my eyes open admiring the blue sky or the clouds. I liked to go there to lay down on the grass, listen to the wind, kiss the flowers and watch the leaves moving.

  • All the temples are phenomenal but Angkor Wat one of the marvels of the world, just make sure you get to the top of the temple in good time to view the surroundings as we were a little rushed by the time we made it up there and couldn't quite soak in the spectacle of a massive temple being in a jungle. Also, feel there should be a tribute/recognition to the people, most likely slaves who built the place.
