Angkor Wat is one of the most famous temples in the world and is high on many traveller's bucket lists. The showpiece temple in the Angkor Archaeological Park, Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world, covering over 200 acres and served as the capital of the Khmer empire. The most revered of all monuments in Cambodia, it is considered to be the symbol of the country with its silhouette appearing on the national flag. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992, it now attracts over 500,000 visitors every year. Despite the crowds, it is best visited at sunrise to truly experience its glory and to capture that iconic image. Angkor Wat is a unique temple, built on a scale you've not seen before and it is a fantastic starting point for your visit to the Angkor Archaeological Park. Visitors explore this complex first before moving on to further temples in the Park. (Photo Credit: Florian Hahn,
