The symbol of Cambodia and a staggering example of Khmer genius, Angkor Wat has to be seen to be believed. Easily the largest religious monument in the world covering a rectangular area of 500 acres, it could be forgiven for thinking that Angkor Wat is a small city and hours could be swallowed exploring the incredible galleries, grand towers and extensive walls displaying impressive bas reliefs.
Dedicated to the gods and representing heaven on earth, the temple complex is the heart and soul of Cambodia, featuring centre place on the national flag, and is by far the country's most visited site. Witness the morning mists cloak the iconic five spires of Angkor Wat or watch as the sun softly sets to reveal its stunning silhouette - whatever time of day you visit, you'll find it hard not to be enchanted.
It would be a sin to visit Cambodia and not see Angkor Wat or the surrounding Khmer temples and that's why we include it on each one of our group tours that visits this charming country. Uncover fascinating details of the complex with a guided tour spotting the unique heavenly nymphs, known as apsaras, the lotus shaped towers and the snake motifs decorating gallery roofing.
If Angkor Wat is the mother of all temples then the surrounding temples are certainly offspring to be proud of. The entire Angkor complex is a treasure trove of magnificent Khmer temples from the serene faces of Angkor Thom and the fine pink stone carvings of Banteay Srei to the 9th century Rolus temples and the atmospheric Ta Prohm swallowed by the jungle. See all this and more on any of our group tours to Cambodia or your very own tailor-made holiday and discover the wonders of Angkor for yourself.
