Jayavarman Z? Jay-Z, Beyonce visit Angkor

Performers Jay-Z and Beyonce, the “King and Queen of Hip-Hop”, paid a royal visit to the ruins of Angkor Wat on Saturday, much to the delight of their fans.

Social media was ablaze with sightings of the American couple as they strolled through the temple complex with an entourage.

“Beyonce is in Cambodia. She visited Angkor Wat. We made it,” tweeted one user.

“Saw Beyonce and Jay-Z at the top of Angkor Wat … couldn’t be more surreal if I tried,” wrote another.

Photos of the two surfaced on Instagram as they posed with adoring fans and other travellers. Some fans, however, weren’t as fortunate and narrowly missed the music icons.

“Say Buddha, Beyonce and Jay-Z were in Angkor Wat yesterday,” wrote one Twitter user.

According to local media, the duo spent two weeks in Thailand before being spotted in Myanmar visiting temples at the end of December.

They flew back to Thailand to welcome the New Year.
