Exploring Angkor Wat in a Vintage Mercedes Benz is something I never thought I would do. Yet somehow, there we were literally living a dream we never knew existed.
What is Angkor Wat?
Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and is the largest religious monument in the world, on a site measuring 162.6 hectares.
Angkor Wat was built in the early 12th century and was originally constructed as a Hindu temple. It transformed into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century
Like many others arriving in Siem Reap, we were more than excited about exploring the temples of Angkor Wat.
Exploring the Temples
Our initial plan was to wake up early and find a tuktuk to take us to the temple or sunrise, however when the lovely staff at The Heritage Suites Hotel presented us with the opportunity to explore the temples in a vintage Mercedes Benz, we jumped at this once in a life time experience.
The Heritage Suites Hotel offers a very unique experience to guests by offering Classic cars to explore the temples in. The drivers are friendly and well equipped with the knowledge of the best places to visit.
These refurbished vintage cars are not only photogenic, majestic pieces of history, but they are clean and comfortable too.
What an unforgettable experience.
