Temples Of Angkor
Situated between Tonle Sap lake and the Kulen mountain in Cambodia, Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. Angkor Archaeological Park stretches over 400km² and contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous temples: Angkor Wat, Bayon, Preah Khan and Ta Prohm as well as villages, schools and farmland. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992, Angkor offers travellers an insight into, and the opportunity to immerse themselves amongst, Cambodia’s rich history.
Tonle Sap Lake
Cambodia’s ’Great Lake’, Tonle Sap, is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and was designated as a UNESCO biosphere in 1997. This unique ecological hot spot contains a rich biodiversity of fish, birds, reptiles and mammals. One of the most productive fishing lakes in the world, Tonle Sap supports over three million people and provides more than 75% of Cambodia’s freshwater fish. A natural wonder, well worth the visit!
Kompong Phluk is a cluster of three villages of stilted houses, each up to 10m high, on the floodplain of the Tonle Sap Lake, near Siem Reap. The three villages, home to 3.000 inhabitants and surrounded by serene flooded forest, are well worth a visit.
Phnom Kulen National Park is one of the most scenic and historically-significant locations in the region. The national park, with its holy Phnom Kulen mountain, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2012. Thousand-year-old consecrated carvings and sculptures, rivers and dazzling waterfalls make this park a popular pilgrimage site for Cambodian people.
Phsar Chas is Siem Reap’s oldest market, located in the old French Quarter. This market, surrounded by French old colonial buildings, offers a unique, colourful, local shopping experience.
Siem Reap’s 18-hole golf course is among the best in Cambodia. Designed by English professional golfer, Nick Faldo, Cambodia’s first PGA-standard championship golf course was recently named one of Asia’s best new golf courses by Asian Golf magazine. The Angkor Resort golf course offers enjoyment for players of all levels and the latest Paspalum turf insures excellent year-round playing conditions.
