Angkor Thom hotels
Angkor Thom is an ancient temple city ruin, located near Siem Reap in Cambodia. Considered the “the last capital of the Khmer Empire,” this city once protected the royal and military families of the area, and was built between the 9th and 13th centuries, during the Khmer Empire. Angkor Thom has four walls, with one gate on each wall, and an extra gate on the east wall. The citadel has a dozen ruins, and many tourists easily spend a couple of days exploring it. The massive stone structures, decorated with reliefs and carvings, are truly an awe-inspiring sight.
- See Angkor Thom’s Bayon Temple, built around 1190, which has both Buddhist and Hindu influences, and was placed in the exact centre of the city, representing the point where earth and heaven meet.
- Visit at least one of the impressive gates here – there are five, the South Gate being closest to Siem Reap – each of which is decorated with gods and demons.
- Take a trip to the nearby Phimeanakas pyramid, and climb to the top to enjoy an incredible view of Siem Reap.
The closest airport to Siem Reap is in Phnom Penh, approximately 230 kilometres away. This airport only accommodates limited domestic flights, so travellers may prefer to fly into the Bangkok Airport, which is 350 kilometres away in Thailand. After arriving at either airport, visitors can take buses to get to Siem Reap. The entrance to Angkor Thom is just 3 kilometres from the centre of the city. Many tour packages include transportation to Angkor Thom in a private vehicle. In and around the town, tourists can use tuk-tuks, bicycles and taxicabs to the sights.
