Angkor City, Cambodia

Well, all countries always have their own historical temple, castle or other places which have been well-known. So also my country Cambodia, we have many amazing historical temples – I am going to post the most well-known temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia. You can reach Siem Reap by bus or plane from Phnom Penh (The Capital City now). It will take you around 5 hours to arrive Siem Reap if you go by bus.

It’s free for Cambodian but for foreigners, you need to buy Angkor Pass: One Day Angkor Pass costs US$20, Three days visit per one week validity costs US$40, Seven days visit per one month validity costs US$60. With Angkor Pass, you will be available to use with all the Angkor temples and monuments in Siem Reap area. You can ask hotel where you can buy the pass.

In Cambodia, our currency is Khmer Riel but US$ will be accepted everywhere.

I just share the photos and the place – so for more info or the history of Angkor Wat, you can go to this Link.

1. Angkor Wat Temple

It’s one of many ancient temples in Cambodia and this temple also appears inside our country flag. The initial design and construction of the temple took place in the first half of the 12th century, during the reign of Suryavarman II (ruled 1113 – c. 1150). Dedicated to Vishnu, it was built as the king’s state temple and capital city.
