Visiting Angkor Wat and the many other temples in the area is an unforgettable and breathtaking experience. The ancient architecture and massive structures reflects power of the Khmer Empire which stretched from Cambodia into surrounding countries like Vietnam, Thailand and Laos.
When you walk through the temples, touch the stones, climb over fallen walls and see how the jungle is taking over you get a real feeling for the mystery. You can imagine what life must have been like when thousands of Khmer people worked, lived and worshiped in these temples.
