Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is simply unique, a stunning blend of spirituality, and symmetry, an enduring example of man’s devotion to his gods. 

Around Angkor Wat

PHNOM KROM
The temple of Phnom Krom, 12km south of Siem Reap on a hill over- looking the Tonle Sap lake, dates from the reign of Yasovarman I in the late 9th or early 10th century. 

Around Angkor Thom

TA PROHM
Ta Prohm is undoubtedly the most atmospheric ruin at Angkor and should be high on the hit list of every visitor. Its appeal lies in the fact that, unlike the other monuments of Angkor, it has been left to be swallowed by the jungle, and looks very much the way most of the monuments of Angkor appeared when European explorers first stumbled upon them. 

Biking

This-month bike tour in Cambodia: Biking Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

So, the big one: Angkor Wat! Travis, Mike and Tracey have all been telling me it’s an incredible sight and that Siem Reap is incredible too. I must say, I was pretty sceptical. I’m the kind of person who will visit the Eiffel Tower, look at it for about 2 minutes, then turn around and watch people watching it instead!

Angkor Wat One Day Guide: The Best of Angkor

One day in Angkor. Guidebooks recommend spending at least three to get the most out of it.  I chose to do it in one, and a one-day Angkor itinerary, while not optimal, is absolutely possible.

Tips on biking to Angkor Wat

Having biked to Angkor myself, there are several things that I think could make your biking experience more enjoyable.

Photographing the Temples of Angkor

Angkor is one of Southeast Asia’s top-rated destinations, yet it’s still vastly underrated. The ancient group of temples most accessible from the Cambodian city of Siem Reap is unforgettable, jaw-dropping and worth every second and penny you might spend to get there. Before reading any further, I suggest you start planning your trip.

Angkor Thom

The fortified city of Angkor Thom (Great Angkor or Great City), some 10sq km in extent, was built by Angkor’s greatest king, Jayavarman VII (r 1181-219), who came to power following the disastrous sacking I the previous Khmer capital by the Chams. At its height, it may have supported a population of one million people in the surrounding region.
