Situated in north of Cambodia, Angkor is the number one ancient temples of Cambodia and one of the most incredible places in the world and a site that has been registered as a UNESCO heritage site. What you really do not miss the temples, in the number of over a thousand, from small mounds of rubble until the incredible Angkor Wat (the undisputed star of the whole city). But let’s see how to plan a trip to Angkor in a rational and safe.

To reach your destination, you have to book a flight to Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia. Upon landing, you’ll have to get a visa on arrival, head to the immigration in the airport and provide with 20 dollars, passport and return ticket and you will have your visa in 10 minutes.

There is various options in order to get to Siem Reap and of course Angkor Wat, you can travel by air, there are frequent flights per day that depart to Siem Reap. Tickets price are vary from 70 to 150 US dollars and the journey will last about 50 minutes! Alternatively you can travel by express boat for US $ 30; you will be arrived after 5 to 6 hours of crossing the Mekong River. This boat trip is exciting and I personally enjoyed traveling on the waters. If, however, after spending a few days as a Holiday to Bangkok, capital of Thailand, you want to go to this wonderful place, you can reach with a bus or a train as well through the town of Aranyaprathet, on the border between Cambodia and Thailand.

Once in Siem Reap and if you are already on a guided tour, then you might be visiting the temples via Tuk Tuk (motorcycle with 3 wheels), the temple exploration are vary depending to the length of your stay in Siem Reap, however, the 3 day visit will be enough in order to visit the complex and get to know the history of the temples.

Your holiday to Cambodia must be booked well in advance, especially if you are going during the Chinese or Khmer New year festival because you might have trouble finding a decent accommodation, luxury resorts and services are easy to get fully booked so if you are a fan of luxury holidays then try to book well in a head of time to get the best possible deal, i advise you to stay in Siem Reap.

Almost one hundred per cent of Cambodia tour packages are include a visit to Angkor Wat, this is where you will be fascinated to see the largest religious site in the world. The Temple is the pinnacle of artistic Khmer and consists of five towers (symbolizing the five peaks of the mountain) bounded by a moat (which represent the mountains and the ocean surrounding it). If you are a big fan of photography and willing to see the temples in sunset or in sunrise, then my suggestion is to ask your guide about the best possible time and the location, as there are 1000’s of tourist and you will definitely don’t want to capture the peoples but the Angkor Wat itself.
