Temples of Angkor are the heart and soul of the Kingdom of Cambodia as well as the ancient capital of Cambodia's Khmer empire where a source of inspiration and national pride to all Khmers as they struggle to rebuild their lives after years of terror and trauma. Today, the temples are a point of pilgrimage for all Cambodians, and no traveller to the region will want to miss their extravagant beauty.

Temples of Angkor are being the perfect fusion of spiritual devotion and creative ambition. Its culminated in the world's largest religious building, the Angkor Wat, and also housed one of the world's weirdest temple, the Bayon. Hundreds of temples surviving today are the sacred skeleton of the vast religious.

It would be great by giving yourself an opportunity to spend at least a week or more to explore Angkor, seeing the temples at a leisurely pace, returning to the principal attractions several times to see them at different times of day such as sunrise, midday or even sunset and taking in newly emerging sites further afield. However, many travellers feel that four or five days is the ideal length of time to spend at Angkor. This is just about long enough to fit in all the highlights of the Angkor area, but even with only two days at your disposal you can pack in a lot. For those who think of visiting temples of Angkor just in a day, I would say just forget about it!
