Discover Angkor Cambodia

Of course, THE great tourist point in Cambodia is the extraordinary centre of attraction found in the Angkor complex. Extending over more than 156 miles˛, this really exceptional site, submerged in a forest decor, more than merits its listing by UNESCO as World Heritage. The Khmer architecture has an aesthetic and spiritual intensity that actually makes it some of the most spectacular historical evidence of human genius. The most well-known temples - Bayon, Angkor Vat, and Ta Prohm - obviously cannot be missed; however, a considerable number of "secondary" buildings are just as rich and impressive. Monumental doors, statues, towers, vaults, bas-reliefs, irrigation basins; a whole life would definitely not be enough to work through all the wonders of this site.
