Angkor Ruins

The magnificent ruins of several ancient Khmer cities at Angkor Archaeological Park cover some 400 sq km and this is one of the world's great monuments. These include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. Angkor was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992 and UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

Angkor itself has no accommodation and few facilities and the nearby town of Siem Reap is the tourist hub for the area.

If Angkor does not fill your appetite for ancient ruins, then there are more at Koh Ker to the north.

Tonle Sap is the largest freshwater lake in south-east Asia and a site of major conservation importance.
