Highlights of Siem Reap
The town of Siem Reap is a stunning Cambodian resort town, but its main purpose is as the gateway to some of the most magnificent ruins in the world: The Ruins of Angkor!
You'll spend more than a day exploring the expansive complex at Angkor Wat and the surrounding ruins, including Bayon Temple, Angkor Thom, and Banteay Srey.
At 162 hectares, Angkor Wat alone - constructed in the 12th century - constitutes the largest religious monument in the world.
Each site represents an important piece of the history of the Khmer Empire, which reigned in Cambodia from the 9th century through the 15th century.
Here, tours explore the verdant, jungle-covered stone temples that were once the healthy capital of a mighty empire.
