Photo Essay - Angkor

kingdom of the past. 

Cambodia's Siem Reap is home to one of the most important archaeological sites in all of Southeast Asia. Stretching over a large area, the Angkor Park contains the remains of the Khmer Empire. This consists of various temples, hydraulic structures, as well as communication routes from the 9th to 15th century. It's one of the most visited sites in this part of the world. As beautiful as the Angkor complex is, it's also a "bit" expansive, a "touch" crowded, and a "tad" overwhelming. Thus, we've developed this photo essay to guide you along the way during your visit. From sunrise to sunset, we've compiled a list of our favourite sites that will take you to each temple during the best time of day for a visit. This means less people and more opportunity to get those beautiful Angkor captures. Our honest recommendation, though? If time allows, do yourself a favour and get a multi-day pass instead of trying to cram it all in one. That isn't the best way to fully embrace an experience that's as special as Angkor. Enjoy the show!
