We could not go to Siem Reap without seeing the Temples, now a UNESCO world heritage site. It was originally built as Hindu temple's and then Buddhist. Angkor Wat translates as 'Temple City', covering 500 acres, being one of the largest religious monuments ever constructed. I would recommend getting a guide if you would like to know more - we didn't and still enjoyed looking at all the different temples which were there. You have to queue and get tickets at another site before entering Angkor Wat and if you were pushed for time that day I would recommend going and picking them up the day before. We got a tuk tuk from the hotel, Mr Lucky, and he waited for us either at the entrance of the temple site or round at the exit so we could get around more smoothly. You can hire drivers through the hotel as well but this was only 10 dollars for the whole day. I would also recommend getting there early as it can get really busy!!!
We followed the orange loop around, starting at the small check point part. Follow our tuk tuk journey below and enjoy the photos :-)
