One of the most spectacular temple complexes in the world.
If people say they have been to Angkor Wat, they have usually been to much more than that. Angkor Wat itself is just the largest, and most elaborate temple in a truly overwhelming complex which contains many, many more buildings, from the well restored exquisitely carved temples and towers to crumbling ruins overgrown by jungle. Wandering around this complex is a fabulous experience.
Best way to do Angkor Wat is to base yourself in Seam Reap, five-ten minutes away, and hire one of the tuk-tuks for a couple of days – however many you need – to tour the complex. There are so many temples, one can easily spent a week or more, especially if the exquisitely carved Banteay Srey is included.
A lot has been written about this place, much better, more focused and much more detailed than I can do, so suffice to show some pictures.
