Incredible Angkor!

 

 

 

 

 

You can easily view our itinerary to find the best route to see the best variety of temples in a short amount of time!  Find out more about Angkor Archaeological Park and get to know a bit about the history of the Khmer Empire while you tour tremendously impressive temples.  One of the most amazing facts about the temples is that they laid virtually untouched for several hundreds of years and were only discovered publicly in the early 1900’s.  Once the home of various rulers of the “world” in the Khmer Empire, the structures, their symmetry and overall intricate design and carving are beyond awe inspiring.  Done with class and sophistication, it is intriguing to think about what these places once looked like when there were also various other wooden structures and decorations all around that consisted of gold and jewels.  We are sure that the Kingdom was absolutely stunning and striking once upon a time, as it still is today in its own right.

You Never Know what Charm a Day at the Temples of Angkor will Hold

 

Over 400 Square Kilometers of this park span across beautiful grass lands with large trees.  As you drive through this once ruling empire that actively occupied and ran this area from the 9th to 15th century, you will enjoy the traditional Khmer life going on all around you as the families wave to you!  Touring the temples is said by many travelers to be magical in experience.  The classical tuk-tuks and the raw state that this site is still in, as Angkor lacks stuffy security and too many “boundaries”, truly allows you to embrace the history of the Khmer Empire and see what a strong and disciplines society of beauty the Khmer people embody.  This helps to explain how the community is so strong and kind after such suppression under the later rule of Pol Pot that would annihilate the educated class.  Angkor is important history and a treasured place of honor for the Khmer people.  Enjoy it for a few days so that you may get around both the smaller and larger loops as well as see some of the Temples that are a little bit of a longer drive away.  It is easy to do with the amazing scene and relaxing pace of Siem Reap town.  Tour the temples by day and treat your taste buds by night.  Stop into Ecstatic Pizza and ask us for help in seeing the temples most effectively with a trustworthy driver.  Since our main objective is to serve you Pizza, Beer and other delicious treats, you will have to let us know you need some help.  Just ask us when you come in or inquire here!
