Owner description: Home to Angkor Wat, one of the largest religious complexes in the world, and a stunning array of 9th to 13th century temples built by the kings of the Khmer Empire. The Angkor Archaeological Park is breathtaking, and still the principal draw for every visitor to Siem Reap.

I enjoy visiting all of the ruins/temples in Siem Reap. They're packed with history and detailed carvings and impressive structures. One thing I have to share about my own personal point of view is that if one wants to take their time, otherwise, it only takes 2 full day to visit most of the big and nice temples. After awhile,...

Visiting in the afternoon was hot and humid. Get a 3 day temple pass. We found the guide recommended by a Tul-Tuk driver very difficult to understand. We did not make that mistake again. The temple complex includes several Wats and palaces and is in beautiful gardens. This is the place we traveled do far to see - it did... More

Although there is a bee line going into the park, it's worth the wait. Just be sure that you have enough power bank on hand as there are just endless photo taking opportunities in the area. Great place to spend a couple of days while in Siem Reap.

Angkor Wat is one of the wonders of the ancient world and is a "must see" once in your lifetime. If your time is limited the main attractions are Angkor Wat itself, Ta Prohm (better known as the "Temple of Doom", the Bayon, and the Elephant Terrace. This will give you a good taste of what the rest is like.... More

Liked everything about it, the beautiful way to see how nature works really. We found some very quite spots within the temple. It was so nice to just sit there and soak all the surrounding. Definitely a must see. Nothing to dislike.

Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, Bayon, and numerous others are in this park. Allow a full day for these three temples. To see all the temples in the park, multiple days are needed.

Rather than review each monument individually, the place as a whole can easily be summed up with one word: WOW. If not Angkor Wat alone, how the zone as a whole isn’t formally designated as one of the manmade wonders of the world is baffling. I would recommend renting out a bicycle (preferably the mountain bike style which will cost... More

Visiting Angkor was a dream come true. The rich history and the amazing architecture made all the bumpy roads, walking and dust worthwhile. Our itinerary included Angkor, the Kulen Mountain, Koh Ker and Bang Malea. It was a wonderful trip, and the agency's promise of "temples without crowds" was indeed true. Plus, we had a fantastic guide who made the... More

This a truly breathtaking experience ; it is amazing to see the people managed to build with the most rudimentary tools. Fascinating the change of hands from Buddhist to Hindu throughout the centuries. A must visit by far.

Impossible to get a real sense of the place as it is so overrun by hordes of tourists from all over the world, starting at the crack of dawn.
