The Angkor Temple Complex

Siem Reap, located in northwestern Cambodia, is the gateway to the world-famous Angkor temple complex, one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia stretching over 400km2. Situated on the northern bank of the Tonle Sap Great Lake, this mesmerizing eighth wonder of the world can be easily accessed by plane, land, and boat.

Angkor Archaeological Park contains the remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations.

The glorious 12th Century Angkor Wat temple is the largest religious building in the world and the most complete of the complex. This architectural masterpiece was constructed in the 12th century and covers an area of about 210 hectares. You can stroll around this massive edifice, seeing the many galleries with columns, libraries, pavilions, courtyards and ponds full of water reflecting the towering temple.

The South Gate of Angkor Thom is famous for its series of colossal human faces carved in stone.
