Create an itinerary including Angkor Wat
A World Heritage Site and the largest religious monument in the world, Angkor Wat contains some of the greatest masterpieces of Khmer art and architecture in existence. Khmer emperor Suryavarman II had the temple built in the early 12th century, originally dedicating it to the Hindu god Vishnu. By the end of the century, the temple transformed into a Buddhist religious site, which it remains today. Tour the 162.6 hectare (402 acre) complex to see its fantastically detailed and well preserved stone temples. Wear clothes that cover your upper arms and legs down to the knees to adhere to the temple's visitor dress code. A visit to Angkor Wat represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Siem Reap online route maker to plot your vacation.

  • I have been to Angkor Wat and I can only say that it's one of the most amazing sites I've ever seen. It really is an iconic temple from this region of Cambodia and without a doubt the largest one. If you want to take in the beauty of temples at sunrise or sunset, visiting 6 temples during a tour I can recommend is the best option.
  • Truly the experience of a lifetime! We took a tour to see the sunrise over the temple and it was truly an amazing site. Almost the entire temple complex is open to be explored. You can visit the first, second, and the top levels of the temple. It was originally built as a Hindu Temple and was later converted into a Buddhist temple. Tons of history at the site. Beautiful carvings in the walls.
