Angkor — You won’t be the first to discover the lost world of Angkor, but stepping into this famous vine-covered temple complex feels that way. The vast, thousand-year old ruins, which formed the capital of the Khmer empire between the 9th and 15th centuries, occupy an area of about 200 acres. Today, Angkor ranks as one of the great wonders of the travel world, with millions arriving annually by way of the former French colonial outpost of Siem Reap, which lies only five miles to the south.

Why Go

For the thrill of discovery, the colonial aesthetic of Siem Reap, and to unwind in a world-class jungle resort.
