Angkor Wat was built as early as the 1100th with the purpose of it being the country's capital. You're certain to feel an atmosphere from the past when strolling through alleyways of temples.
The trip to Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat is situated about 5 kilometres from the city of Siem Reap, where most people choose to stay while taking daily trips to the temples. When you travel to Angkor Wat, make sure you set enough time, at least 2 or 3 days, to discover all the temples worth seeing - but remember the area is enormous! KILROY suggest renting your own tuk tuk, as the drivers always know what temples are worth your time. They might even give you a history lesson on top.
Angkor Wat sunrise
If you want to make the most of your trip (and your photos!) to Angkor Wat you should go during sunrise, so book your tuk tuk for around 4.30 AM. The feeling of excitingly waiting in the pitch-black dark of night, before you spot the first few beams of sunshine arise behind the temples, is indescribable. You'll be tempted to hold your breath for just a few seconds, and the only sounds you'll be able to hear are nature's own. Travel to Angkor Wat and we'll guarantee you an experience of a lifetime.
