Cambodia’s Angkor Wat is one of the most prominent attractions in all of South East Asia. Long considered ‘lost’, the ruins of Angkor were never really lost to the Khmers, who have used the monuments as religious sites throughout their history. The site includes the ancient city area of Angkor Thom, with its many carved-stone faces standing as silent witnesses to former days of glory, and Ta Prohm, a temple complex slowly being reclaimed by the jungle. We start the trip in vibrant Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, and visit the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, a somber reminder of the reign of Pol Pot. The revitalised city is also home to Wat Phnom, as well as the Silver Pagoda, located in the Royal Palace. Its waterfront, located near the confluence of the Tonle Sap and the mighty Mekong River, is a picture of tranquility and a great place to relax.
