Testimonials:

Naga is a friendly, cheerful and helpful guide and he speaks English well. He communicated with me once I engaged Holiday Houseboys and had a detailed itinerary prepared for 2 days visiting the temples including Angkor Wat. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history behind Angkor Wat and the other temple complexes and he made it so interesting with anecdotes. And at the end of a tiring day visiting Angkor Wat, he recommended a spa with good masseur to help with relaxation. I added an additional day of touring and he brought me to a lotus farm with an adjacent picturesque rice fields that really made my holiday so delightful. He clearly understood what I prefer to visit and made it such a personalised experience. As he is an avid photographer, he took photos throughout the trip and sent me a beautiful collection of pictures when I returned home with no additional charges. I strongly recommend Naga as the perfect tour guide for Siem Reap.” – Hikaru, Singapore

Highlights of Angkor Wat


Angkor Wat Monument

Angkor Wat Monument


Angkor Wat, the majestic Hindu-Buddhist temple complex in Cambodia, is one of the world’s most remarkable archaeological sites. Situated within the ancient Khmer capital city of Angkor, it encompasses 162.6 hectares (402 acres). Indeed it holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest religious structure globally. Let’s dive into the allure of Angkor Wat and what it offers to travelers.

A Rich Historical Tapestry

Built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II, Angkor Wat was originally a Hindu temple dedicated to the deity Vishnu. Gradually, it transformed into a Buddhist site towards the end of the century.
