Why visit Cambodia and Where is Cambodia
Why visit Cambodia
Angkor, the ancient capital of the great Khmer Empire, is one of the most magnificent wonders of the world, an archaeological site with an amazing array of stone temples. Each year, Angkor attracts millions of visitors, exploring the massive monuments in dense forests.
At the heart of Angkor is the splendid Angkor Wat, the world’s largest single religious complex. This spectacular monument was built during the 12th century and originally dedicated to Vishnu, the protector of creation in the Hindu myth. Watching sunrise or sunset at Angkor Wat’s west entrance, on either side of the lotus pond, is a memorable experience.More
