Angkor Wat is the main temple in the park and the biggest tourist attraction. The outside is surrounded by a wide moat and a thick wall. After crossing the bridge and going through the gate, the center of the temple will be directly in front of you down a long, raised causeway, usually with throngs of people. The central temple area is crowned by its remarkable five bee-hive shaped towers. The outer passageways are lined with magnificent carvings of battles fought long ago. You can climb near the top of the towers for a great view of the surrounding area, but be careful coming down, the steps are much steeper than they appear!
