Strategy

Cambodia’s most famous attraction is undoubtedly Angkor Wat, so we decided to focus on the temple complex in launching Google’s largest world-heritage imagery launch to date. We also wanted to demonstrate how cultures can be preserved and shared with just one click.

Execution

The “Build Your Own Adventure with Google” project combined experiential press events with a virtual press kit promoting Angkor on Google’s Street View and the Cultural Institute.
