Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.
Angkor Wat has become a major tourist destination the past few years. It is best to hire a tour guide. When you arrive in Siem Reap the tour guide will arrange transportation usually by tuk-tuk or mini-van.
