UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
Angkor Wat is the common name for the Angkor complex of temples. It is one of Cambodia's landmarks as well as a representative symbol of the country. It is located 6km north of Siem Reap. Angkor Wat combines the two basic elements of Cambodia temple architecture—altars and corridors—in a highly regimented and symmetrical complex of buildings. There are more than 600 extant structures. Some of the most famous include the Angkor Temple, Angkor Thom, Bakheng, Ta Prohm and Banteay Srei.
Banteay Srei
1,780 Reviews
Historical Site
Banteay Srei is located near Phnom Kulen in Northeast Angkor Thom. It is a unique and exquisite building among Angkor's monuments. It is famous for its bright colors and exquisite reliefs. It is known as the “Gem of Angkor Art”. The name Banteay Srei means “women's castle”, which is supposed to have been constructed and carved by women. Its Central Tower and large library contain a large number of statues. Its walls, columns and other architectural surfaces are full of reliefs, complex shapes and soft lines. Unlike the green sandstones used in most of the Angkor monuments, Banteay Srei was built using Khmer-specific red clay, which is extremely colorful and keeps the carvings intact.
Beng Mealea
1,520 Reviews
Historical Site
Beng Mealea is a mysterious, hidden temple in the Angkor heritage complex, its name means “Lotus Pond”. On the dirt road in front of Beng Mealea, there is a multi-headed snake statue, and the river flower pond next to it has dried up. Beng Mealea's size and design style is similar to that of Angkor Wat. Today, there are only broken pillars, collapsed walls and ruins in the temple, leaving traces of war and earthquake. Surrounded by jungle, it appears to be in a state of even flux. Many well-known movies and TV series such as Tomb Raider have been filmed here.
Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is a well-preserved temple among Angkor monuments. This is the location generally referred to when discussing "Angkor Wat". Angkor Wat is not only large in scale, but also perfectly symmetrical. The reliefs are exquisitely beautiful, reflecting the peak of Khmer classical architecture and are printed on the national flag as a symbol of Cambodia. The architecture of Angkor Wat follows the Five Pagoda Temple style. It consists of altars and cloisters and a moat on the periphery, symbolizing the mountains and lakes of Indian mythology. The walls are covered with beautiful reliefs that tell a variety of Hindu myths. In addition to the architecture itself, stunning sunrise and sunset scenes attract many photographers.

Trip Moments

The most magical and romantic temple in Gongkai is a pyramid-shaped building. It is known as the Oriental Pyramid. It is the most mysterious and most shocking building in Cambodias countless Khmer sites, because it is deep in the jungle. Deep, and rarely disturbed by the outside world. Because the tribute is far away, starting from Siem Reap to the north, looking for the Eastern Pyramid, exploring the most mysterious smile of Khmer, passing through the rugged and difficult cattle lane is undoubtedly a self-challenge and a baptism of Khmer history. . Into the Gongkai, a few kilometers of jungle, scattered with many remains of the Angkor period, among them, some temples are still well preserved, magnificent appearance, exquisite carvings, even more than the many landscapes of the core scenic spot of Angkor Shocking people. Visiting Gongkai, the most incredible is a tall pyramid-shaped temple. The whole temple is made up of boulder and is situated on a huge grass. If you want to climb to the top of the tower, you need to climb hundreds of steps. In addition to the magical "pyramid", Gongkai is also scattered with numerous architectural treasures. Deep in the jungle, there are many beautiful stupas scattered, some ancient woods, intertwined with the stupa, have been completely integrated, it is incredible. The most fascinating moment of Gongkai is the early morning hours, accompanied by the light of the harmony, the sun rises slowly from the distant woods, shining between the ancient temples, dyeing the entire jungle Make a piece of gold.
