Angkor Wat - Jungle Atlantis

In honour of the BBC's fantastic series looking at the death of Angkor Wat’s Megacity in Cambodia, we thought we would show you one of the amazing private tours we can arrange for you on a holiday to Angkor Wat.

Angkor Wat Cambodia Bayon FAce

The BBC documentary tells the story of the great builder king, and follows the ongoing detective work, as modern-day experts attempt to discover why such a great city so suddenly collapsed. Deep in the jungle, archaeologists discover a sophisticated network of houses, monasteries, roads and canals – the forgotten world of Angkor’s greatest ever king. As the programme shows, the new LiDAR technology has completely transformed archaeology in Angkor. By unlocking the secrets of this vast city, the team continue to shed new light to reveal the scale and splendour of the city and the dramatic events leading to its fall. Their ground-breaking work explains how this vast metropolis flourished and why the world's greatest medieval metropolis was abandoned to the jungle. With stunning location photography and contributions from world experts on the history of Angkor, Jungle Atlantis tells the complete story of the rise and fall of the greatest medieval city on Earth.
