Angkor Wat - Cambodia

Angkor Wat (or Angkor Vat), a World Heritage Site, is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built for King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation—first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Kh

Discussion on Angkor Wat

xyz :

There are many manificent temples in Cambodia left from hundreds to thousands of years ago, such as Angkor Wat Temple, Bayon Temple, Banteay Srey Temple, Preah Vihear Temple, and thousands more. But why only Angkor Wat temple has been chosen as a Wonder of the World?

question_baby :
"Wonders of the world usually have huge impacts on civilization. You might call it a popularity contest. There are plenty of wonderful things in the world, but only certain things have actually inspired many generations of people across many continents. A better question would be why are some things more popular than others?"
enziguri2000 :
"its all unique and great. but the one diffrence that seperate it from the rest is it size.angkor wat is the world largest temple.and its is covered by the jungle.fusion of rock vs tree.lyke real indiana jones."
apollosunset :
"you must go there, see for yourself, and you will know why it is far more imposing than the other ruins =D"
expat :

Tinh T :
"must check out earthwalkers hostel...great friendly staff and very chill vibe. good food. decent rooms. super cheap. must check out sunrise at angkor wat in the morning. and you Have to get a massage by a blind person!!"
bee :
"I used the following link to plan my trip to Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville. It is local, online and published monthly so the information is very current. The temples are spectacular. There is a lot of history and culture to experience. The crushing poverty can be disturbing. I gave more money to monks and beggars in Cambodia than I spent on hotels. That is not really so generous as I travel pretty cheap."
Eavy :
"Just see thier travel planer "
winnyhk :

would you please tell me from Angkor Wat (Siem Reap) to Ho Chi Minh city by what traffic, ( transportation ) and how much, thank you!

zazazoom :
"try airasia.com the earlier you book the cheaper it is."
azza :
"You can easily book a bus ticket from Siem Reap to Phnom Penn at most travel agents & guesthouses in Siem Reap. It should cost you about US$3.50 and take about half a day or so. You will then need to stay overnight in PP and buy a ticket to HCMC for the next day. Again, it should cost you about US$3.50, and takes about 8 hours to complete the trip. You MUST go through Phnom Penn to get to HCMC. DONT buy a ticket direct to HCMC from Siem Reap. It's not possible to do the trip in one day and most likely it will be a scam bus which will end up getting you ripped off. Have fun! PS I dont think Air Asia flies between Siem Reap and HCMC."
