Angkor Wat alone justifies a trip to Southeast Asia. Like many sites in the Angkor Archaeological Park, this breathtaking temple complex dates to the 12th century, with its west-facing orientation indicating that it was intended as a mausoleum for its creator, Suryavarman II. The site's colossal size reflects its ambition: this was intended as no less than a microcosm of the universe. Nonetheless, it's difficult to get lost here, with the complex arranged on three tiers. The instantly recognizable five inner and four outer towers of the raised central temple serve as orientation points and make a particularly majestic sight reflected in the nearby water basin.

Every surface in this well-preserved complex is covered with intricate carvings reflecting Hindu cosmology and the Khmers’ military triumphs. Elegant colonnades, charming free-standing libraries on high pedestals and various tucked-away corners where the jungle threatens to reassert its might are all awe-inspiring places to get away from the inevitable crowds.

Practical Info

Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s most popular attraction. It is located almost four miles (six kilometers) north of Siem Reap. Save your walking for the temples and take a tuk-tuk from town.
