Angkor Wat Archaeological Park

Ta Prohm one of the most beautiful temple at Angkor

Angkor Wat, a World Heritage, is simply unique, a stunning blend of spirituality and symmetry, an enduring example of man’s devotion to his gods. Relish the very first approach, as that spine-tickling moment when you emerge on the inner causeway will rarely be felt again.

Angkor Wat is the largest and undoubtedly the most breathtaking of the monuments at Angkor, and is widely believed to be the largest religious structure in the world.

Angkor Wat is also the best-preserved temple at Angkor, as it was never abandoned to the elements, and repeat visits are rewarded with previously unnoticed details.
