siem reap

Siem Reap is a beautiful city in Cambodia. Located in towards the north of Cambodia, Siem Reap brags a variety of activities and locations that can kick-start your honeymoon in Cambodia with a bang. Within the province of Siem Reap you can find the Angkor stone ruins. Angkor was the capital city of the Khmer Empire, which ruled between the 9th and the 15th Century to be exact. Within the capital city of Angkor lies the Angkor Wat, the largest temple in Cambodia.

The Angkor Wat was built around the 12th Century, and is the national symbol of Cambodia. The sheer magnificence and strength of the Angkor Wat temple can serve as a comparison to your marriage. For a temple to stand strong all these centuries, to brave the hardships of mother nature and still stands till today, it’s foundations had to have the strengths of a thousand nations. When you and your partner witness the Angkor Wat, the strength of the temple will be reflected in your marriage. Nothing will come between you and your partner till death does you part. You will have the Angkor Wat, and yourselves to thank for this.
