Angkor Wat, the beauty of history

It is one of the most impressive places I have ever visited. UNESCO even calls it one of the most important archeological sites in Southeast Asia. No less than 400 square kilometers of forests, historic buildings and temples that once belonged to the Khmer empire. The centre of attention: the largest temple of this area, the national symbol of Cambodia. Meet Angkor Wat!

Angkor Wat, holy city
This Hindu temple is one of the most important relics left from the Khmer empire. If you’re walking around, you can hardly imagine that this was once -somewhere around the year 1100- built without any machines. Some of the stones used to build this amazing place, weigh around 1500 kg!

It’s beautiful , it’s sacred, it’s fun!
Walking here does something with your imagination. Being surrounded by buildings from a completely different time… Feeling like you’re discovering a lost city. The images, the details, the roots of trees that are slowly becoming one with the statues. And the best part is that the area is so large that you can wander around for days or rent a bike to cruise along all these impressive buildings. This is so intensely beautiful that you want to see it with your own eyes. So before you can, I share what my eyes saw with you today…
