While all of Cambodia offers a fascinating glance into southeast Asia's ancient human history, perhaps no other destination is as iconic as Angkor Wat - the world's largest religious monument, in a spectacular sprawling complex of ruins spanning an area of 163 hectares. From the town of Siem Reap, you will access these expansive remains. The five towers of this intricately carved temple tell stories, and you will see why this is considered the apex of Khmer architecture. In fact, the whole Angkor complex is representative of the art & architecture of the 600-year Khmer Empire, which ruled the region from the 9th-15th centuries.
