Angkor Wat (or Angkor Vat) is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built for king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. The largest and best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre — first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist — since its foundation. The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s prime attraction for visitors.

The tentative date for this trip will be come between September to November 2007. I really have no idea how much this will cost but I’m estimating a $600.00 package for a few days. The time between the trip and now is a couple of months which is enough time for people to save and stock up on equipment. I’m no travel expert but I really want to shoot this beautiful place. Any information on travel costs and the best time to go (is the 4th quarter really the best time to go — there are preparations to be made for this..) would be highly valued 🙂
