Cambodia’s Angkor Wat Tops the World’s List Thrice


Cambodia’s Angkor Wat Tops the World’s List Thrice

The famous Angkor Wat Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the symbol of Cambodia, was crowned champion in three different competitions conducted by world’s travel websites, according to a senior official of the Authority for the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap (APSARA).

According to Mr. Sok Sangvar, Deputy Director General of the APSARA Authority, the Temples of Angkor have recently won the No. 1 global must-see spot on the Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel List 2015 because it is the “perfect harmony of creative ambition and spiritual devotion.”

In the same year, he added, the Angkor Wat Temple, appearing on the Cambodian national flag, has been also crowned the No. 1 world landmark in the 2015 TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Landmarks Awards.

In 2014, Angkor Wat came out on top in a ArchaeoMadness competition organized by the Archeological Institute of America to mark the International Archeology Day, he underlined.

Mr. Sok Sangvar attributed Angkor Wat’s success to the efforts of the Royal Government of Cambodia, APSARA Authority, private sector and other relevant parties, as well as people and local and foreign tourists.

Located among the lush tropical forests of Cambodia, Angkor Wat was a 9th-15th century Khmer capital as well as an artistic and architectural icon. //Source: AKP,September 04, 2015
