Angkor Wat

The Temples of Angkor Wat, in Cambodia, were built between 1220 BC to 802 BC. The impressive complex of temples of Angkor Wat have countless temples spanning in an area of 400 sq km. The most popular temples are Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Phrom which are, as many Hollywood fans would recognise, the site from the film Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie.


The temple complex has recently had a massive influx of tourists, explaining why Siem Reap, a town near Angkor Wat, has many hotels, in comparison to the one that it had 15 years ago.
