The temples of Angkor have put Cambodia well and truly on the map, but with our expertise and our knowledgable guides we can still help you get off the beaten track at Angkor Wat. A point of pilgrimage, pride and inspiration for Cambodians, you will be overwhelmed by the sheer size and beauty of these Hindu temples that were built over generations – each striving to better their ancestors, with Angkor Wat being crowned the world’s largest religious building.
The temples of Angkor, built by the Khmer civilization between 802 and 1220 AD, represent one of humankind’s most astonishing and enduring architectural achievements. Abandoned in 1432, Angkor was forgotten for hundreds of years until the temples were discovered by a French traveller in the 1860s – a strange and exotic city lost in the jungles of Cambodia.
We have some fantastic temple excursions on offer that will try to help you avoid the crowds while seeing the highlights with our expert guides, who know the best spots for every time of day from sunrise to sunset.
