How to Get There

Hi guys, this is my first trip to travel abroad and my first destination is Siem Reap, Cambodia. Starting my journey from Juanda Surabaya to Siem Reap, but before arrive there, I have to transit at Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok first. It's almost 10 hours trip and finally I arrive at Siem Reap. I arrive at Siem Reap at 9 pm and feel so tired after long journey so I decide to rest at hotel and continue the trip tomorrow.

On the next day, my first destination is the famous Angkor Wat Temple. To reach this temple, you can take tuktuk to Angkor Archaeological Park. You can ask the hotel staff to book tuktuk for you don't forget to negotiate with the tuk tuk driver to get the best fees.

What to Do

Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world. Angkor War means City Temple and the greatest religious construction project in Southeast Asia. Angkor Wat is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu who is one of the three principal gods in the Hindu pantheon. But, many people believe that Angkor Wat was not only a temple dedicated to Vishnu but that it was also intended to serve as the king's mausoleum in death.
