Where It Is, How to Get There
20 minutes north from the Cambodian city of Siem Reap, the ruins of Angkor can be reached by car or motorcycle. Visitors can reach Siem Reap's Angkor International Airport through flights from cities like Seoul, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, and Phnom Penh.
The former heart of a formidable empire, Angkor stretches over more than 200 square miles of forest and ruin. Angkor's magnificent structures are all that are left of the Khmer Empire's old capitals, constructed between the 9th to the 15th century CE.
At Angkor, you'll find the Bayon Temple's intricate stories told in stone; Ta Prohm's tree-overrun walls, and the jaw-dropping magnificence that is Angkor Wat - the latter was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992.
